Monthly events taking place this summer

First Sundays at Sunrise and Sunset -- Dawn-to-Dusk at Coronado Historic Site


If you've wanted to see the sunrise over the Sandias, or enjoy an unobstructed view of them at sunset - glowing pink for which they are renowned -visit the Coronado Historic Site.  We have arranged for extended hours on the first Sunday of each month to allow visitors to be at the site at these special times of day.  A Ranger is available to answer questions.


Photograph the beautiful views, watch the birds overhead or on the site, walk the trails.  First Sundays are free for New Mexico residents.
