The Church at Galisteo, New Mexico

This church, Iglesia Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, is located in the center of Galisteo, NM about 10 miles south of our house in Eldorado.

The church has a long and rich history; it sits on the site of an ancient Tano Indian village, the Galisteo Pueblo. Formerly called Santa Cruz de Galisteo, the pueblo dates back into at least the 1500s.

The town of Galisteo itself was part of a Spanish Land Grant in the 1600s. There are nine pueblo ruins in the Galisteo basin.
