Visit New Mexico's Coronado Historic Site near Albuquerque

The Coronado Historic Site near Albuquerque is one of New Mexico's recognized historic sites. This is one of the many recommended things to do in Albuquerque. Not only is this site very interesting from a historical perspective, it offers incredible views of the Sandia mountains and amazing birdwatching opportunities.

This Coronado Historic Site contains the ruins of the Kuaua Pueblo. It is estimated this area was first settled around AD 1325 and was occupied by approximately 1,200 people when Coronado arrived. Conflict with Coronado and later Spanish explorers led to the abandonment of this site within a century of first contact.

In the 1930's archeologists from the museum of New Mexico came to this area to excavate looking for evidence of Coronado, and discovered the square kiva and up to 1200 rooms in this community.

The kiva contained many layers of mural paintings. These murals represent some of the finest examples of Pre-Columbian art ever found in the United States. A scientist in the area was able to preserve the layers of art found on the walls in the kiva, and fourteen examples of the orginal art are on display in the Visitor's Center. The visitors center contains prehistoric and historic Puebloan and Spanish Colonial artifacts on exhibit with several hands-on components.

Behind the visitors center are incredible views of the Sandia Mountains and the Rio Grande River. We were lucky enough to spot a Bald Eagle in the distance during our visit. The center has birdfeeders in the area and several gazebos to sit back and enjoy the expansive views.
