AAA Editor Notes

Nambé Pueblo is 8 mi. s. of Española on US 84, then 2 mi. e. on SR 503. Established in the 14th century, Nambé Pueblo (in the Tewa language, the name means “people of the round earth”) was a hub of cultural, economic and religious activity when Spanish colonists arrived in the 17th century. The Nambé took part in the Pueblo Revolt of 1680, an attempt to drive the colonists out of the province. Above the pueblo, Nambé Falls Recreation Area is a popular spot for camping, hiking, picnicking and fishing. Note: Still-camera photography and sketching is permitted in the recreation area but not within the pueblo. Pets on leash are allowed.
