Look for the remains of a church built by Spanish explorers, who went on to occupy the area for 200 years. Continue through the park to see the Civil War battlefield where Confederate and Union troops clashed at the Battle of Glorieta Pass. Stop by the visitor's center beforehand to receive maps and a full history on the rich park. Bring plenty of water.

  • Sept 19, 2016 entry was free. Liked the rebuilt underground "Kivas". Interesting history in this place. Sadly Spanish Conquistadors came to this area.
  • Beautiful holy ground. In awe of walking where so many natives to this great land walked! Well worth the time and $7!
  • If you love history, this is a must see! The ruins are beautiful!
