Silhouetted against the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the Taos Pueblo, a multistory adobe dwelling, captivated Spanish explorers, inspired countless artists, and helped draw generations of travelers looking to experience the Native American culture of the Southwest. The pueblo, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, lies a little northeast of the center of town. For historical insight, join a college student–led tour of the complex.
