Coronado National Memorial


This guide to Coronado National Memorial outlines the opportunities to experience the beautiful natural and cultural landscapes of what is now southeast Arizona. Seeking cities of gold, 339 European soldiers, hundreds of Aztec allies, and large numbers of enslaved people traveled through arid deserts and rugged mountains, a journey that would have long-lasting impacts on the cultural and natural landscapes, including devastating impacts on the Indigenous peoples who had lived in the lands since time immemorial. No physical evidence of the Coronado Expedition exists here, but the park offers a sweeping view of the San Pedro River, which the expedition followed to find the mythical CĂ­bola.
