Visiting the Coronado Historic Site in Bernalillo, New Mexico

The Coronado Historic Site is one of New Mexico's recognized historic sites. Not only is this site very interesting from a historical perspective, it offers incredible views of the Sandia mountains and amazing birdwatching opportunities. In the 1930's archeologists from the museum of New Mexico came to this area to excavate looking for evidence of Coronado's expedition through the Rio Grande Valley, and discovered the square kiva and up to 1200 rooms in this area - the ruins of the Kuaua Pueblo. 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 bird feeders in the area and several gazebos to sit back and enjoy the expansive views.
