From ancient pueblo settlements to Spanish colonial haciendas, Los Luceros Historic Property has provided a bountiful life for people through the centuries. This summer, the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs’ Historic Sites division invites you and your family to enjoy the Los Luceros Historic property.
“New Mexican’s are invited to bring a picnic to enjoy on the banks of the Río Grande or under the shade of the historic apple orchard,’ said Patrick Moore, Director of New Mexico Historic Sites. “Activities and presentations held on these five summer Sundays will focus on nature and the culture of New Mexico and offer rare access to one of New Mexico’s most enchanting properties.”
Admission to the Cultura y Naturaleza (Culture and Nature) series of events at Los Luceros will be free. The events occur on the third Sunday of the month from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Los Luceros in Alcade. Each date will focus on a different aspect of Los Luceros’ storied history and significance in New Mexico.
