Excellent place to learn about some of the terrible history of how indigenous peoples were treated by the Europeans. Impressive remnants of what must have been impressive buildings when built.

We went for the astronomy tour a few weeks ago. The night sky was amazing. It's worth going anytime but make sure you time it to where they are open late for the star watching. The park ranger was ama...zing in his knowledge. See More

The Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument (Mountainair, NM) are breathtaking ... found myself sitting quietly pondering the ruins at Quarai, Abó, and Gran Quivira as well as walking reverently. ... If the ruins and stones could talk (and they almost do ... hush and listen) what wondrous, adventurous, heroic tales they tell. Life is good! See More

My wife and I enjoy visiting all three sites. Quarai is our favorite. The rangerrs are all great and they rotate amongst the sites, so you can different perspectives on each visit.

Beautiful ruins. Great history! Lived and worked there 3 years. Liked working there, living was remote and .... CHINDIS.

Beautiful locations and very interesting history. I've lived in NM for over 40 years, yet I learned some new things about the Spanish colonization of the area.

Had some good amount of rain at Abo lately. It's always so pretty to see water in the arroyo.
