Acoma Pueblo - known as Sky City - is the oldest continually inhabited city in North America. Sitting high atop a mesa, Acoma is home to the historic San Estevan del Rey Mission church.

Important Guidelines for Visiting Pueblos

Visitors are graciously welcomed on most Indian lands, with restrictions. Please be courteous and remember that these are people's homes. If a pueblo is closed for ceremonials, do not attempt to enter. Cemeteries and kivas are among the private areas that are off-limits to non-Indians. It is wise to call the pueblo office before visiting. The staff can provide all kinds of useful information and advise you about taping, photography, sketching and recording restrictions, which vary. Indian laws apply on Indian lands. Remember that your visit is a privilege.
