Amazing layers of history. It feels like a well-kept secret that this place exists! You can see all three park sites in a day, and then stay the night in the Mountainair area.
Three separate sites showing the remains of Spanish mission Church's in central New Mexico. Be prepared to drive a little as the 3 sites are 15-25 miles apart from each other, but certainly worth the effort.
I have visited this place twice and I need to come yet again, I liked it so much .It is so peaceful that you close your eyes and you can picture the past life of the people in this Spanish Pueblo Mission, with its agricultural and religious activities.

What a nice surprise. An employee at an art gallery in Santa Fe told me this is one of her two favorite locations in NM for photography. I took a chance but kept my expectations low.

Another set of gorgeous ruins. The walk is a little longer, but it is a paved path. Gran Quivara ruins are 25 miles south and definitely out... 更多
I had no idea about this system of sights until I stumbled onto them by mistake, man am I glad I did. This is one of those places that helps you understand the scope of our country in a much broader sense. It takes you to a point in history where things are sometimes a little muddy in relation to... 更多
There are three sites to visit here. We missed ABO on our way into town (traveling East ) and chose not to backtrack. We also chose to visit Gran Quiviri only, not seeing Quairi. Do stop at the visitor's center to get maps. Staff was very helpful and agreed if we were to see only one that Gran Quiviri was... 更多
