“No other place like it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

When family came to visit, we all went to the pueblo to "soak in" the history. From the destroyed pueblo church to the people still living as they have for the past 600 years, the place exudes a sense of timelessness. There are artisans who sell their crafts, plenty of free parking, and some places that are off limits to visitors because of religious and cultural reason, but there is plenty to experience if one has any sense of history. There are religious dances at certain times of the year that one should also attend.

“There's something to that whole "World Heritage Site" thing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Oh, Taos Pueblo, you managed to scrape the touristy scales from my eyes and show me the world of a people I had never much considered until this trip to New Mexico.

Hot rock massages, galleries of fabulous art, southwestern cuisine, haunting landscapes, a wonderful inn... all are vital parts of a New Mexico vacation. But. The Taos Pueblo kind of stops your heart. Be open to visiting a place that is wholly without gloss, allow yourself to trust that it isn't a tourist trap, take the tour and absorb the words of your guide. Stop for a chat at an open door. Realize that you and your worldview are very out of place here, and enjoy that fact.

Taos Pueblo is an amazing sight. It is a world Heritage sight and I am amazed that it has been continuously occupied for 1100 years.

“Another world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Taos Pueblo is a World Heritage site and well deserved. Preserved as it has been continuously occupied for over 800 years, it gives the US a perspective that is hard to achieve elsewhere. The main pueblo has no electricity, running water, cell phones etc. Best of all, the pueblo people have worked hard to preserve and honor their own culture, history, language, and religion. Please respect that when you visit. If you are lucky enough, or plan well enough, to hit one of the really special days (San Geronimo Day, Christmas Eve etc.) at the Pueblo you will be drawn into another world. The Pueblo does close when they need to take care of their own as for funerals etc. so call or check. No photos or fee for camera.

“Well Worth the Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

One gets a good overview of the history of the Pueblo and the guides are patient and informative. It certainly is a breath of fresh air after the shop-o-mania in town.
