Albuquerque Travel Information

Hornos are traditional outdoor ovens used in New Mexico pueblos for baking bread. This Native American tradition traces back for centuries. The bread dough is made and kneaded and the loaves are shaped, then they are allowed to rise overnight. In the morning, the wood-stocked oven is lit and the bread begins to bake. Try a traditional loaf at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque.

Take a drive to one of the 10 Native American pueblos within an hour’s drive of central Albuquerque. They are: Acoma, Cochiti, Isleta, Jemez, Laguna, Sandia, San Felipe, Santa Ana, Santo Domingo, and Zia.

If your travel to Albuquerque happens to fall over the Christmas holiday, make sure you stop and admire the Luminarias and Farolitos.
