Very authentic feel of life in early Taos. This was a self guided walking tour of an historic hacienda set in the period. A short drive from the busy plaza to the picturesque Taos countryside was relaxing!

Have you ever wondered what a hacienda was really like? This is the place to see then. You really get a sense of history and life in the southwest in the 1600-1800s. Worth the visit.

The hacienda is a 21-room complex built around two courtyards that was a home to the Martinez family and its servants as well as housing the family business. Furnishing is sparse, but there are informative displays on weaving, blacksmithing, and leather work. When we visited,...More

Nice little place, a couple of miles out of town. I think the term that best describes this place is "under curated." You stumble through a series of dimmly lit rooms and some have interesting pictures with few notations, and others are just a jumble...More

We've been here before and enjoy it. There are usually very few people here, so it's easier to get into imagining being an early Spanish settler living here than if it were full of tourists. If you are a history buff, you will enjoy it,...More
