The compound is really much smaller than anticipated. You are here to see the church and the actual pueblo of two buildings, divided by Red Willow Creek. A much larger reservation (95,000 acres) is behind the pueblo, and is not open to the public.The two larger pueblo buildings in the center of the compound date back 1,000 years, and were built by the Northern Tiwa tribe. It is considered an honor to live in the ancient pueblo where electricity and running water are prohibited. It is both a National Historic Landmark and UNESCO World Heritage Site.Besides admission fees, there is a camera fee, along with restrictions on cameras.Hint: Go early.
