    For over 1000 years this pueblo has been lived in by the tribe, Summer nightly bonfire dances can be heard from our deck coming from the Kachina Lodge just two blocks away

    The Taos Pueblo is, in all likelihood, one of the oldest buildings in North America. Set along a tributary of the Rio Grande, this complex, beautiful and imposing adobe structure is the most significant tourist attraction in Taos and is fantastic place to purchase Native American art. It is closed in early spring for religious rites, which I found out, unfortunately, while visiting Taos is March 2012.

    Be sure to visit Taos Pueblo - the oldest continuously inhabited structure in the US. There are often public festivals, especially during the holiday seasons, and you can purchase local art and Indian food directly from the Pueblo people.

    There are some festivals at the Taos Pueblo that are very interesting and vibrant. But whatever you do, don't take any pictures or do any sketches. The dwellers feel it is disrespectful to them and their culture. There is a quaint Catholic church right there adjacent to the Pueblo. Mass is at 7 a.m. on Sunday and is very close quarters, but such a very spiritual place.

    This is one of my favorite places on earth. Christmas Eve is so special, an experience you will not find anywhere else. Any of the Feast days or just sitting quietly by the river.

    Amazed by the history, architecture, nature, culture and everything behind it. You can take the free tour that is guided by one of their tribe members. I could feel why this place was so important to Taos Pueblo people. You need to purchase a ticket to take photos in the village. Don't take pictures of people and inside of their house without asking. It's an important place for us to visit but also it's a living ground for the people.

    Taos Pueblo is the only living Native American community designated both a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a National Historic Landmark. The multi-storied adobe buildings have been continuously inhabited for over 1000 years. This is truly a wonder! I enjoyed the tour of the Pueblo by a Native American college student who answered all our questions about the Pueblo life style and values

    Wonderful way to learn about the culture, history, and beauty of the people who settled this magnificent land. Be sure to look up feast days as all are welcome to enjoy these celebrations and ceremonial dances.

    Timeless. Taos Pueblo is the oldest continuously inhabited community in America. There is a beauty in it's age and awe in the fact that people still live, work, pray, and play there. Go into the church and feel the spirit of so many who came before then pay your respects at the cemetery all under the amazing sky and dancing clouds that are New Mexico.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to this beautiful World Heritage Site! The cost to enter is less than a cheap dinner, $10/person, $5/student, kids free, and $6/camera. I recommend paying for the camera and taking the tour! If not, you'll regret it like I did after my first visit. Without the tour I didn't comprehend what i was looking at. I was provided with a self guided tour map but my sense of direction was off. I overheard a couple at dinner conversing about their visit to the "Place of the Red Willow". I asked where that was. When they said it was also known as the Taos Pueblo, I was confused. They convinced me to return and take the tour, so glad that I did! My tourguide Flowers was incredible! I have been on numerous tours and I usually get more out of the printed literature. This tour was fascinating and inspiring. I will be returning May 3, September 30, and the Christmas Holidays for tradional celebrations that Flowers recommend I observe. No revealing of the religious meanings is permitted. They are also not permitted to teach outsiders the Tiwa dialect. Tiwa is to be taught orally and no written form of the language is to be produced to protect them from exploitation. I felt honored and humbled by the history shared. I cannot wait to return. Thank you Flowers for making me feel welcomed and not like an invasive intruder!

    One of the most fascinating examples of Native American culture in the Southwest. The multi-level adobe structure is a living community dating back more than 1,000 years. You can do a walking tour and get amazing photographs.

    Worth the price of admission and quite an experience. A physically unique and spiritually mindful place.

    We pretty much saw the Pueblo on our own, although we listened in on a few groups. We also bought a neat drum for my son and otherwise tried to support the local merchants.

    For history buffs, "green" travelers, those on/off a budget! Especially great at Christmastime.
