This site is a bit of a drive but the drive itself is scenic and totally worth it. The site is quite amazing and educational. We watched a movie in the visitor center and looked at the displays...

We took a drive in the area while camping near Santa Fe. It was unknown to us but we stopped in. The display in the museum was enlightening about the story of the Jemez people and their interactions with the Spanish. The inlaid floor is a work of art. The walk through the historic site was smooth and informative. The brochure and plaques had similar information but added a great deal to my understanding. The remaining structures are so old but it's ready to imagine life here in the 1600's. The entry fee was very reasonable.
I fell in love with this place when I seen it. It was back in 1994 and it was the best experience. I got to help make bricks for the rebuild of the church. They let us go and explore and I loved it. I would love to go back and see how much its changed.
