Corrales aggressively strives to retain a rural lifestyle. Prehistoric sites indicate the Corrales Valley has been occupied as early as 500 A.D. when the ancestors of the present-day Indian Pueblos derived sustenance from the fertile valley. Subsequent populations, including Hispanic, European and American families, settled here to raise grapes, apples, and livestock. Today, Corrales is distinguished by its broad green pastures and orchards, its rich historic and artistic character, and of course the sounds and scents of roosters, cows, horses and sheep.
There are fiestas and harvest celebrations, wine tasting events, and traditional Hispanic and Native American dances and religious observances throughout the year. Two of Corrales' most historic buildings are available for viewing. Casa San Ysidro Museum s a 1650's estate that is now operated by the City of Albuquerque Museum. The Old San Ysidro Church (1850’s) is also a Southwest treasure not to be missed.
