Salinas Mission Ruins - Abo Unit

Mitchell Tillison

Albuquerque, United States

Artist's Description

Indigenous people occupied this site as early as the 14th century for the same reason the Spaniards came to prize it – nearby salt mines. These ruins are of one of the missions the Spanish built along the Salinas trade route, circa 1630 – 1680. The mission, named San Gregorio de Abo, was destroyed during the Pueblo Uprising
of 1680. The mountains in the background are part of the the Manzano Mountain range, near Abo, New Mexico.

Pentax K110D, F11, ISO 200, 1/500, 90mm.
