It has been continuously inhabited for around 1,000 years. Visit early in the day. Take time to talk to people. Eat some fry bread! Welcome to Taos Pueblo! The Pueblo is considered to be the oldest continuously inhabited community in the USA. The Native legends and detailed oral history trace our existence back to the beginning of evolution of man and all of creation. Our Native Language, Tiwa, is unwritten, unrecorded and will remain so. The details of our traditional values are guarded as sacred and are not divulged. Understand that the past oppressions upon our culture have required us to keep the details unspoken. We welcome you in hopes that you will enjoy the quiet in this high mountain desert oasis that celebrates life everyday as we have for thousands of years. A perfect Bed and Breakfast to watch the hummingbirds and sunsets after a day of exploring. I spent hours watching the hummingbirds come to these feeders as they flit back and forth over the prairie with Vallecito Mountain in the distance. Homemade fry bread in Taos Pueblo. Delicious! The buildings are made entirely of adobe. Adobe is earth, straw and water mixed and poured into forms. After the bricks are sun-dried, they are stacked and bonded together with the same adobe mixture. The walls are frequently several feet thick and the interiors are coated with washes of white earth to keep the rooms bright and clean. The roofs are supported by large timbers/vigas. Smaller wood/latillas are placed across the vigas. The roof is then compacted with earth. The exteriors are plastered annually with adobe due to the exposure of the four seasons. The Pueblo maintains a restriction of NO ELECTRICITY and NO RUNNING WATER within the scared village. The introduction of wood stoves was adopted in many of the homes for cooking purposes. This is the San Geronimo Church built in 1850 and is a registered National Historic Landmark. It is one of the youngest buildings in the Taos Pueblo village. This is a Catholic church. 3/4's of the Pueblo population share in some of the Catholic practices, while the native rituals preserve 100% daily life. The native religion is verbally passed down from generation to generation. The Kivas are just one of the sacred religious shrines. They are of limits to non-members. Great Drinks!!
Hotel/ Resort and Spa it offers a secluded yet indulgent sanctuary, with a natural setting, surrounded by towering mountains and rustic high desert, sunlit, fish-filled streams, tropical flora and the sounds of calming waterfalls. The rooms are very nice. #hotel #spa #roadtrip #urban #fancy #nature #trovertips The two main structures of the Pueblo are called Hlaauma/North House and Hlaukkwima/South House. These structures are believed to be well over 1000 years old. The buildings are actually many individual homes built side by side and in layers with common walls and no connecting doorways. The Pueblo looks much like it did when the conquistadors first arrived. At one time, the only entryway into the homes was by ladder through an opening in the rooftops. This served as a source of light then as it still does today. The roof top entrances also served as a safeguard against intruders of the Pueblo. A door on the Taos Pueblo underneath an oncoming storm. Many families do still live in these homes, although some have moved outside of the Pueblo and maintain the building the of their ancestors. I was told that the homes can be tricky and expensive to repair. Read more: http://serindipitie.com/2014/06/03/in-the-sacred-shadow-of-the-mountain/ Taos Pueblo is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Outside a museum just north of downtown Taos, NM Beautiful, old churches abound Hidden hot springs we had the privelage of visiting while in Taos. Ask the locals how to get there, perhaps they can give you directions! But be respectful of the healing waters and leave a turquoise rock if you do. #whiskeysister Overlooking North house of the Taos pueblo..
This is designated Unesco Heritage.
The oldest pueblo dwellings by American Indian tribe Tiwa... A great place to stay while exploring Taos and its environs. The rooms and grounds take you to the edge of the mountains and hummingbirds. Love the contrast of adobe and blue sky's in New Mexico Nov 2016 The Pueblo in Taos, New Mexico is said to be the oldest continually inhabited community in the USA. The buildings are well preserved and made entirely of Adobe. Join the free tour that leaves from the church every 20 mins - tips appreciated of course. Food and shopping available. What a cute little town this is! Nestled in the mountains of Northern NM, there's two restaurants I would recommend: Orlando's and Michael's. There's still the Pueblo that you can visit, and the town is bursting with Southwestern art and adobe architecture. Saw this “high chair” for sale just a little north of downtown Taos, NM The John Dunn bridge over the Rio Grande River near El Prado, NM Family recipes abound on the Taos Pueblo at the only cafe there.
