This is my 2nd trip to this place and it is so interesting and gorgeous. If you are interested in New Mexico history this is a great place to learn about the Pueblo site and take in the amazing scenery.
This site includes the ruins of an abandoned pueblo village. There is a little museum, which was better than expected. It includes information on the site, its people and the surrounding area. What really makes a visit here worthwhile is that when it was excavated in the 1930's, colorful paintings were found in one of the kivas. There is a... 更多
We were on the tail end of our week long field trip traveling across the Southwest in Motor homes. We dropped into this site as we had a little time to kill our last day. Brian was our tour guide and he was fabulous with the kids. They were captivated the entire hour and one half that we were there.... 更多
I had passed by this site many times and decided it was time to visit. It is nice to see what the care-takers have done with this village. There is a museum and gift shop as well.
If you are visiting Albuquerque and are interested in history or culture, do visit Coronado Monument, located in Bernalillo, about 20 miles north of Albuquerque. Admission is only $3 and the facility is beautifully situated along the Rio Grande with the lovely backdrop of the Sandia Mountains. Coronado visited this area in 1540, but this site mainly contains the excavated... 更多

A must see visit for anyone with an... 更多
I found Coronado Historical Site to be very interesting. Named for Vasquez de Coronado, who camped in the vicinity in 1540–1542, this archeological site is most noted for the ruins of Kuaua pueblo and a series of murals that were recovered from a square kiva in the pueblo's south plaza. These murals represent one of the finest examples of pre-contact... 更多
This is a small but precious cultural site in a beautiful setting along the Rio Grande. The name is a misnomer; the star here is the ranger/anthropologist Ethan, not Coronado. The main attraction is the kiva with painted walls, a rarity for both the murals, and because non-Puebloans are allowed to enter. Without a guide, the kiva would be interesting;... 更多
Boy was I ever surprised by this historical site. We saw a state park and wanted to check out the prices. When we went in, it was crowded at the entrance so we went in a little further to the Pueblo ruins and Historical site. The ranger was extremely informative and even answered my 5 year old grand daughter's 30... 更多
