“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

It is HUGE! It is so intriguing to see the different building styles, and how all the rooms and buildings hook together - it is incredible! I also feel really bad that our own teams were the cause of part of Pueblo Bonito being crushed back in the late 30's or early 40's - they decided they needed to shore up the cliffs at the base, because there were cracks in them and in the process, because they tampered with nature, the cliff face actually sheared off and fell on Pueblo Bonito, crushing a large portion of the back/east side. Shame on us!

“Very impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

even more so when you realize that most of the square chambers were always dark inside and not used as living spaces. The huge "kiva" holes and grand back wall give you an idea of this being a hustling and bustling place 1000 years ago...
