Taos has many titles to boast; it was voted the #1 Native American destination in August 2014 by USA Today, and has also been designated both a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a National Historic Landmark. However, more than its titles, Taos is home to over 1900 Taos Indians who are preserving a culture and their ancient pueblo home that is estimated to be around 1,000 years old.
Visitors can take guided tours of the pueblo and view how the large structure was made using adobe brick. Visitors can also view some of the beautiful area, including St. Jerome Chapel, and visit Taos Pueblo artisans and businesses selling handmade arts, crafts, and foods.
