Coronado State Monument

Kuaua Pueblo

Evangeline Chavez 2010

Just minutes north of Albuquerque (off of I-25, exit 242) in Bernalillo, is Coronado State Monument ; ( Kuaua Pueblo, a Tiwa word for “evergreen). The Pueblo was first settled around AD 1300 by American Indians where Francisco Vásquez de Coronado—with 300 soldiers and 800 Indian allies from New Spain—entered the valley while looking for the fabled Seven Cities of Gold. Instead he found villages inhabited by prosperous native people.

Every year  the first weekend of  December the grounds and ruins of Coronado State Monument are decorated with hundreds of flickering luminaries and thousands of Christmas lights.
