This is a little off the beaten path, but well worth it. I believe it was the first home in Taos, but if not, certainly one of the oldest structures there. Enjoyed seeing how they lived.

to learn about the history of Taos and of the people who lived there a long time ago. Visit of the hacienda, of many rooms and the 2 patios. Interesting but not essential if you go to visit Taos.

There were no tours available when I went, so you have to read all the information. There are times when things are unclear and it would be nice to ask an expert. The history is amazing and the collection of materials is very interesting.

It was a wonderful experience to see what a real and rather large hacienda was like. It takes about 30 minutes, but you appreciate the life of the families in the area.

The manager does a wonderful job explaining the hascienda heritage. What is most appealing is the uniqueness of local and timing.

The rooms open off a central area, each displaying artifacts to explain how life was "back in the day." It was very well done, and showed how really strong and tough those people were!
