The historical site of Casa Rinconada is an isolated Great Kiva situated in the Chaco Culture National Historic Park of New Mexico.
Located on a ridge a short distance from Pueblo Bonito, it does not form part of a great house. It is also not built like many of the other kivas in the area as it sits partially above ground, whereas traditionally most kivas were built with their roofs at ground level.
Casa Rinconada is one of the largest known great kivas and is 20 metres in diameter with a depth of between 4 to 5 metres.
