Poshuouinge Pueblo Ruins Reviews & Ratings
Totally off the beaten trail, but well worth the stop for the landscape views. This site is considered to be an ancestral Pueblo to modern Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo in the nearby Española Valley. Although the walls have long since fallen, a visitor can still see the footprint of the structure in the long, low rectangular mounds that show where they once stood, and still see bits of pottery and flaked stone made during the manufacture of stone tools. You can look, but please don’t take anything but pictures.
