This is a self guided tour. We really enjoyed seeing "life" from the past. Easy to walk, but not wheel chair accessible. It does not take you long to do this, highly recommend as a Taos activity.

La Hacienda De Los Martinez is not well publicized, but it is a gem! It is not to be missed when vacationing in Taos. This old great house was built in 1804, and you can walk into the different rooms and see history come alive,...More

We recently visited Taos and Santa Fe. We stopped here and almost didn't go in. Nobody else was there except for a couple of staff. The lady at the desk and the "weaver" could not have been more friendly. This site gives you a great...More

I've been to Taos several times, but never to Hacienda Martinez - going here created a new awe of, respect for, and thirst to know more of New Mexico history. Quite amazing.

Not well publicized but an interesting way to see how early Taos settlers lived. I went twice in 2 weeks. You can only go into so many art galleries.

A visit to the Hacienda provides an opportunity to look back on the era of the Santa Fe Trail and time period previous to New Mexico becoming a state. It provides a wonderful historical perspective on an important time period of US history.

Very interesting place to see the way of life a couple of centuries ago. As we were there in winter, the snow makes a very nice view of the building and surroundings

This is a totally intact hacienda dating back to 1804. It was built by the Martinez family. He was a wealthy trader of the time period so the structure served as both home and trade center for the owner's trade with Mexico. The structure has...More

Each door opening from the courtyard holds a surprise regarding how the rooms were used in the 19th and early 20th century. Very casually run in contrast to places with high tourist attendance.

Really enjoyed this little piece of history, Lots of artifacts, tools, and other items from 200 years ago. Self paced tour through the 21 rooms reveals a different aspect of life here at the time.
