I find it hard to rate Picuis Pueblo, but I would like to say that Picuris can be quite enchanting. The August 10th Feast Day is a smaller and more intimate experience as compared to the larger Feast Days at many of the other Pueblos. The Christmas Eve bonfires are, likewise, smaller in scale than those at Taos Pueblo. This can be wonderful if you are looking for a less crowded ceremonial event! My husband is confined to a wheelchair, and while none of the New Mexican Pueblos are very easy to visit, we do enjoy watching the bonfires at Picuris, which are defintely more accessable for us than the big event at Taos. Picuris also runs the Hotel Santa Fe, in Santa Fe, which is a great place to grab a bison burger and enjoy flute music in the lounge on Friday and Saturday nights, although it's a bit pricey to stay and eat at the full-service restaurant for me. The on site restaurant and museum have not been open in a while, but when they were, my husband and I used to go frequently. I've never felt threatened at the Pueblo at all and find it sad that someone else did. Picuris can be quite enchanting, in it's own Hidden Valley, quiet sort of way.
