In the crowded field of ancestral Puebloan sites, the Coronado Historic Site offers little in terms of spectacular structures, but it is a hidden gem. This isn't Chaco, or Aztec, or even Salmon. The visible adobe-work is marginal and often reconstructed. What it--and no other...More

This village bustled from 1300s through the 1500s, and then Coronado came visiting. The restored kiva gives you good perspective. Guided tours are helpful. The original kiva art is now in the visitor's center, easy to admire. The grounds help explain the culture.

To really see the site, allow a couple of hours at least. The guides are public employees and you need neither hire nor tip them. The guide we had was an archeology grad student who obviously loved what he was doing. The... More
