In addition to the ancient ruins which are ok, you can wonder down towards the Rio Grande River and get some great views towards Santa Fe and the Sandi Mountains.

In Albuquerque for the Hot Air Balloon Festival, this was on my list of must see early history sites. One of the guides took us around the area, explaining early Pueblo life, how they built their Pueblos, use of each floor. Covered how far the residents had to go to obtain wood used in the roof beams. Early start of... More

A gem of a historic monument, the small, understated entry is just a great intro to the Pueblo Indian cultures of the Rio Grande valley and a must stop if you're in the Albuquerque vicinity. Visitor Center's resident expert Annie was very informative, friendly and personable. The exhibit of the one of a kind ancient murals will be the only... More

These ruins are a little misleading. All the ruins you see are modern reconstructions on the original site of an Indian pueblo. There is a tiny museum, and then you take a tour of the small site. My guide was EXCELLENT. I chose not to go down into the kiva because there is no ladder ever built that I cannot... More

We walked around the grounds and read the signs. We did not take a guided tour or go inside the building.

This is the third tie I have been to the site. I take the tour with Docent and then explore the area all over again. I love being able to walk to the river and envision being there 300 years in the past. Two of the time I was there a pueblo resident showed me gardening techniques and how they... More

This was a very interesting visit. Even the teenagers were interested! The kiva tour was something you won't see anywhere else in the southwest. They are doing a great job preserving such amazing culture and traditions of the native Pueblo people.
