Pueblo of Santa Clara

 

Founded around the fourteen century, Santa Clara traces its ancestry to Puye, an abandoned site of cave dwellings on the Pajarito

Plateau.  Increasing tensions with the Spanish led to its participation in the Pueblo Revolt of 1680.  The mission church, once 

thought to be the narrowest of its kind, has been reconstructed several times since the 17th century.
