With its twisting narrow streets, lacking the familiar grid pattern, it can be difficult for travelers to find their way through Taos, New Mexico. This book is the answer to the traveler’s dilemma. With a map and color photographs included, this guidebook will enable travelers to successfully find twenty-four sites in and around Taos, including museums, historic homes, and natural wonders. Some sites tucked away on isolated side streets can easily be missed without this guide. Travelers can now find their way to Taos Pueblo, home to native inhabitants since about the year 1350, and to St. Francis of Assisi Church in Ranchos de Taos, the famous church painted by Georgia O’Keeffe and photographed by Ansel Adams. With a short history of each site included, travelers will gain an appreciation of all the ancient community of Taos has to offer.
