This plaza is well-used by the locals. Farmer's market, music, festivals. Restaurants, shopping, and museums are located within walking distance. Experience a well maintained historical site and enjoy the activities. We did.

The plaza was a great place to walk with choices for shopping or just browsing. The music on Thursday night was a wonderful addition. Can't really go to Taos without taking a stroll through.

A central area in center of town, worth a stroll around the shops and businesses surrounding the open gathering space. Underwhelming after visiting The Plaza in Santa Fe
