The Pueblo of Jemez is the only remaining village of the Towa speaking pueblos in New Mexico. It is surrounded by colorful red sandstone mesas and serves as the gateway to the Ca–on de San Diego and the Jemez Mountain Trail National Scenic Byway. The pueblo itself is located 27 miles (43 kilometers) northwest of Bernalillo. Visitors can stop at the Walatowa Visitor Center which houses a reconstructed traditional Jemez field house, a photo exhibit, a gift shop and other cultural exhibits.
