Taos Pueblo, USA

A new UNESCO whs in the collection...coming from New Mexico in the US

The northern most tribe of the 19 Pueblo Indians of New Mexico, Taos Pueblo members are culturally oriented toward the native life and have established an environmental office to maintain and protect the natural resources of the 89,000 acre reservation. The Pueblo, built in the 13th century, is located 2.5 miles north of Taos.

Taos Pueblo's most prominent architectural feature is a multi-storied residential complex of reddish-brown adobe divided into two parts by the Rio Pueblo.
