New Mexico has a long history of settlement. Rock dwellings are characteristic of the agricultural Indian tribe Pueblo. The nomadic Navajo and Apaches probably came to this area only a few centuries before the Spaniards. In 1540, Francisco Vásquez de Coronado (1510–1554) came here looking for the legendary “seven golden cities” or “bonanza”, but left empty-handed. At the beginning of the 17th century, Juan de Onate (1550–1630) built the first European settlements, including Santa Fe in 1610. The colony was later destroyed by the Indians, who defended their way of life. In the 18th century, Spain regained control of the territory, and in 1821 the area became part of Mexico. See New Mexico abbreviation.

The eastern part was annexed by the United States in 1845. During the ensuing Mexican War, the entire territory was occupied by the US military, and in 1848 New Mexico was ceded to the United States. Frequent clashes with the Navajo and Apaches fueled the legends of the Wild West. The construction of the railway in 1880 brought a stronger wave of immigrants.

During World War II, an atomic bomb was developed in Los Alamos, northeast of Santa Fe, and the local nuclear research center is still important to New Mexico. Agriculture is limited by low rainfall, but cattle breeding is important. Almost 40% of the population is of Spanish descent, most of whom come from Mexico. Spanish is the second official language. The share of Indians (9%) is the highest of all the states of the Union. The market is dominated by the market of traditional Mexican crafts (ceramics, warm blankets, silver jewelry, etc.).

Bandelier National Monument

More than a million years ago, a huge eruption of the Jemez Volcano took place near the present-day town of Los Alamos in the state of New Mexico. The explosion was about 600 times more powerful than the known eruption of Mount St. Helen in 1980. At that time, lava, ash and cinders covered the entire area with a layer of up to several hundred meters, which destroyed all living things. The landscape was forever marked by this event.

Over thousands of years, the layer of ash turned into a soft rock called Tuff, in which rivers carved entire valleys over time. The walls of the moats are full of cavities, which the Anasazi Indians managed to use for living during the 13th to 16th centuries. Using primitive tools, they expanded the cavities and created literally large caves out of them. They thus created a simple dwelling that was well protected from bad weather.

Most such dwellings have been preserved in the Frijoles Canyon area, where there is also a visitor center introducing tourists to the history and nature of the place. Detailed printed guides to local walking routes are also available. An easy walking route passes through the canyon, on which you can see many hidden rooms in the tuff walls. In addition to them, the ruins of several-story puebels have also been preserved here, but they were created at a much later time. Among the most admired are the remains of a circular pueblo called the Long House. The main two-story building was originally surrounded by a central square. This unique and unusual building at the time provided shelter for more than 100 people.
