Los Luceros Historic Site



On March 28, 2019, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed legislation designating Los Luceros as a State Historic Site, thus securing funding, staffing, and preservation of the site in perpetuity. Now, the site is now open to the public with regular hours, and tours upon request, and accessibility will only increase in the coming months.

The picturesque 148-acre Los Luceros ranch is located north of Alcalde along the Río Grande. Upon arriving at the site visitors quickly realize why people have called the beautiful property home for over six hundred years. The centerpiece of Los Luceros Historic Site is a magnificent Territorial-style Hacienda that houses centuries of history within its walls. The property also includes an 18th century Capilla (chapel), Victorian cottage, carriage house, guesthouse, and farmyard.

In a state blessed with numerous cultural gems, Los Luceros Historic Site is surely one of New Mexico’s most scenic and historically rich properties.
