New Mexico is so hot and bright that the earth colors are radiant as in the adobe homes made of rich clay for over a 1000 years. Taos Pueblo is at the heart of history and it's charming, peaceful and colorful. The Taos Pueblo history hit me hard and for the first time in my Native American life, I felt a connection and a value. My friend felt a very strong spiritual connection and between the two of us we had a very interesting experience. To watch the children playing in the stream nearby was like going back in time. It was so beautiful.

Fascinating and worth the day trip from Santa Fe. We took the high road there and Loved the views along the way. We would recommend it to friends who visit Santa Fe.

Visited Taos and went here. Very impressive! Our young Native American guide was very informative in providing historic detail and personal perspective. There is a $6.00 camera use fee which did not surprise me, since we had visited the Acoma Pueblo previously with the same policy. Taos Pueblo is the only designated Native American World Heritage Site and is well preserved. The adobe structures have been occupied continuously for 1000 years. Discovered that this means someone is always there, which enables that distinction to be true! The church is beautiful inside and is the only place you cannot photograph, our guide informed us that the rituals are not spoken of either. Walked around and was impressed with the crafts, etc. Also saw a snake on one of the bridges. Named him Sir Hiss Junior since I had seen a much larger rattlesnake at the Grand Canyon! It fit in with the ambiance of the place, otherwise I would have run away screaming! The cemetery is interesting also. A must see if you are interested in history, Native American Culture and beautiful surroundings. The town of Taos is worth an overnight. We happened to be there on a Saturday when there was a Dog Parade showcasing those looking for their "Forever Home".

The Pueblo has been continuously inhabited for over 400 years, and is still in use, preserving the ways and language of the inhabitants. Our guide was a very impressive young woman, about to be a senior in high school, and she provided both historic detail, current information and was able to answer all the questions that the group posed. This is not an easy lifestyle to maintain for the community that embraces the tribe's traditional way of life. Visiting will give you great insight into the hardships faced by the Pueblo dwellers (Red Willow People) and their connection to the land and ways.

The Pueblo is charming, and photos of it are iconic. Interesting to hear history retold thru the eyes of another culture. Surprising to hear such praise of the Nixon administration, which we were told was the only administration to give the Native Americans a fair shake in the courts and legislature. Many of the pueblo apartments were converted to stores and we could walk through. Visit the shops just to see what "inside" looks like.

A separate photo pass is required to take photos inside the village.
