It’s this exceptional abundance of remnants of the once-thriving native culture and people known as the ancestral Puebloans, that makes Mesa Verde National Park a “must-visit park”. Mesa Verde is so important, both historically and culturally, that UNESCO designated it a World Heritage Site.
Mesa Verde means “green table” in Spanish, an appropriate name for this fertile landscape, including and surrounding various tablelands. During a visit to this park, you get to discover the history of the peoples who once called this place home.
