The Monument in Focus
Here, the visitor has the chance to know the residences of the Pueblo people who lived in this location since the Twelfth century. As it was the case with other Pueblos, its residents abandoned the villages in the Sixteenth century. They were looking for water resources which they found by the Rio Grande.
Frijoles Canyon is the richest area of the monument as it comprises not only houses but also kivas, which are ritual sites, and paintings. Quite interestingly, the villagers carved some of their homes into the rock which served as walls. Other sites worth visiting include Tyuoyi, Long Hose, and Talus House. These constructions date from the Thirteenth and Fourteenth centuries and archeologists found traces of habitation until the Sevententh century when they were abandoned in a fashion similar to other Pueblos in the same area.This is a great travel souvenir to take back home.
