Espanola abounds with historical and cultural riches. There are many ancient Indian Cliff Dwellings to be found close by, any of which can take you on a journey into the past. When you visit, it is nearly impossible not find yourself trying to imagine what life was like for the people who inhabited this area more than a thousand years before the Spanish Conquistadors arrived. Two of the favored stops are Bandelier National Monument and the Puye Cliff Dwellings.

There are no less than seven Pueblos within fifty miles. Each has it's own history, and traditions vary from one to the next. Many of them welcome visitors to their Markets and Festivals year round while a few are open to the public only at certain times so it is best to check in advance. The diversity of arts and crafts that can be seen is simply incredible and some of the artisans are known world wide.
