Tours at Puye Cliff Dwellings

Additional information on Puye Cliff Dwellings toursYour visit will be a journey of personal and spiritual discovery as you experience the stillness, beauty and cultural significance of Puye Cliff Dwellings. Journey back in time, two thousand years and you will find the ancestors of Santa Clara Pueblo thriving here at Puye. Using material found at this site, they sculpted their homes from the soft volcanic rock of the Pajarito Plateau. Hand-hold trails carved into the rock allowed them for travel between levels and breathtaking views of the valley below define their world according to nature's boundaries: the earth and the sky. Today, these homes continue to flank ancient trails cut into the cliff face and grace the spectacular mesa top.
