|Tyuonyi Pueblo Ruins|
Bandelier is 45 miles west of Santa Fe. The park covers about 50 square
miles of narrow canyons at the base of the Jemez Mountians, the majority
of which is designated as wilderness area.|
This pueblo is named Tyuonyi which translated means “Meeting Place.” It is just a short walk from the visitor’s center. It had at least two stories and over 400 rooms, and was inhabited for an estimated 400 years ending in the mid-1500s.
