ABOUT RIO ARRIBA COUNTY
According to riograndenha.org, “Río Arriba County is the largest land area within the Heritage Area, and it is the least populated. The City of Española is the primary municipality in the County, although it is a relatively small community surrounded by a number of villages within the Rio Grande Valley. The County Seat is in Tierra Amarilla, but Española is the gateway to all of Northern New Mexico, opening corridors to communities along the Río Chama, the Río Grande, and the High Road to Taos. A key archaeological attraction in the area north of Española is the Mesa Prieta Petroglyph Preserve. To the northwest along the Chama River is the village of Abiquiu and the Piedra Lumbre geologic formations.”
