With the arrival of the Spanish colonists from Mexico into New Mexico, one of these routes came to be known as El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, or the Inland Royal Road.
Except for a few detours, El Camino Real followed trade routes used by indigenous peoples bringing turquoise mined in Cerrillos, from present-day New Mexico, to Mexico, and agriculture based on corn, beans and squash, as well as religious beliefs, from Mexico to the north. Later, El Camino Real brought Spanish settlers, Spanish culture and goods from Mexico to New Mexico.
