POTD: Taos Pueblo #2

Taos Pueblo #2
Taos, New Mexico
2011

Originally the only way to enter any of the rooms in the pueblo was through a hatch in the ceiling. The windows were quite small too, as they still are. This was all done for security purposes I believe. Even with all famous bright sunlight of northern New Mexico, those rooms must have been quite dark inside. If it were me, I would have spent most of the time outside, except in really bad weather.

  1. If I’m not mistaken, this is the oldest continuously lived in pueblo in North America?
    On a unrelated note – I love New Mexican (Mexican) food especially their chillies.

    1. Taos Pueblo makes that claim, but then so does Acoma Pueblo, so I don’t know. If you consider them to be cities, as many do, then they both put St. Augustine, FL to shame in terms of age.
