The Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area recognizes the San Luis Valley as the cradle of Colorado’s earliest settlement, where Hispanic, Native American and Anglo cultures met and interacted.

The 3,000-square-mile heritage area covers three counties, Conejos, Costilla, and Alamosa and includes the Monte Vista, Baca and Alamosa National Wildlife Refuges, the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
