Taos Pueblo Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

The oldest and best-known New Mexico pueblo has been designated a World Heritage Site, of enduring value to mankind, by the United Nations. A visit is a step back in time. Although Pueblo Indian ruins are found throughout the Southwest, here the site is intact, occupied and used daily, which makes it unique. The pueblo contains a multistory mud-and-straw adobe structure with ladders leading to upper floors. Some 200 residents live here year-round without running water or electricity. About 1,000 other villagers live outside the pueblo in modern homes, but sell mica-flecked pottery, silver and turquoise jewelry, moccasins and drums from homes on the pueblo's ground floor that have been converted to small shops.

    Un des plus beaux sites pour comprendre la structure d'un village pueblo. Les murs en adobe sont très graphique et font penser à certaines constructions traditionnelles africaines. N'oubliez de regarder le paysage autour de la ville, le village étant construit au débouché d'un canyon, on comprend vite l'intérêt d'un tel site.


    Le site est très célèbre et lors de notre visite, l'accueil n'a pas été des plus avenants sans être pour autant rude ou malpoli.
