Bandelier National Monument is best known for mesas, sheer-walled canyons, and several thousand ancestral Pueblo dwellings found among them. It also includes more than 33,000 acres of designated wilderness. The best-known archaeological sites, in Frijoles Canyon near the Visitor Center, were inhabited from the 1100s into the mid-1500s, and earlier groups had used the area for thousands of years. Bandelier remains one of Santa Fe’s must-see attractions.
