The adobe, multi-storied homes of Taos Pueblo have captivated painters and photographers since the 1920s, when an artist colony formed in nearby Taos and virtually established Southwest art. It helped inspire the Pueblo Revival style of architecture in contemporary New Mexico.
The pueblo is home to nearly 4,500 people who value their privacy and insist visitors do the same. Signs mark houses around the plaza that sell arts and crafts. Respect the off-limits signs and don’t climb the ladders to the rooftops.
The Taos people are very skilled in leatherwork, evident in the drums and moccasins they make.
The pueblo operates Taos Mountain Casino, (575) 737-0777.
The pueblo is located 2.6 miles (4.2 km.) north of the Taos Plaza and is open to visitors most of the year, but closes every spring for eight weeks for ceremonial purposes, so please call ahead. The pueblo levies admission, parking and photography and videography fees. Any sketching, painting or commercial photography requires advance written approval.
