Nearly missed this place, not well signposted but glad we persevered. Definitely a hidden gem. We spent quite sometime going through and reading the history - fascinating. Definitely a must see in Taos.

This is one of those very old, must see attractions in Taos. A lot of history transpired within the thick adobe walls.

Huge old hacienda built in 1804. 21 rooms and 2 large courtyards. Many interesting artifacts are displayed, and the guide for the self-guided tour is helpful in understanding the place.

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, no less the courtyards are beautiful. The house and land are very well preserved, and when we visited, there was a lovely and very informative lady who loved to spin yarn. I highly recommend this site!
