(4/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
Taos Pueblo represents the ancient tribe of the Taos people. It is one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in the United States. This World Heritage Site is internationally recognized for its multi-storied residential pueblos and the residents' private lifestyle. The tribe welcomes visitors in its public places, but asks visitors to respect its culture. For example, do not take photos of the tribal residents and inside the San Geronimo Chapel. Shops and businesses open to the public are clearly marked with signs. The stream that runs through the village is the community's sole source of drinking water, so do not enter the water. With our world travel planner, Taos attractions like Taos Pueblo can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • We did not realize some of the buildings date back to 950 AD. This is a 'living' Native American village- a UNESCO World Heritage Site. One only need about say 30- 45 minutes for the visit and there i...  more »

  • The Taos Pueblo is a great site to visit! You can see an incredible structure that has been functioning for centuries! Though there have been some modernizations, it is still amazing to see such an old city and it is even more inspiring to be able to talk to and learn from the people that have inhabited it for such a long time. It is in a beautiful area and we chatted with some very nice people on our visit here. If you're in the area I highly recommend stopping here. You can see a culture that is very unique and it can give you a fresh, new perspective on an important piece of American history.
  • This place is awe-inspiring. If you go, remember this is home to many and you are a guest. Take the guided tour. You will not be disappointed. Our guide was very interesting. Go into the shops for extra treat! History here you don't learn in school.
  • Amazing and a little disconcerting too. The tour is a good idea but free walking is fine to. Make certain that you follow the instructions and boundaries. I say disconcerting because the pueblo is also where people live. For me it's odd to be a tourist in someone's backyard. Literally.
  • If you go to Taos, you HAVE to stop there! Do the tour (30min) and ask questions to your guide. This place is magic so be respectful to the people living there.
  • One of the coolest places I've been during my travels. The locals are very kind and creative. There are handmade things to buy here that support the community as well as a beautiful view of Taos Mountain.
