Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument
645-acre national landmark preserves three separate but historically related pueblo of the 17th-century. Spanish Franciscan missionaries built missions at the locations in the early 17th-century. The forced abandonment in the 1670's by the Tompiro and Tiwa Indians have left the masonry ruins in relatively good shape. All three sites plus a visitor center are open to the public.
