English, Spanish, and Tiwa—a Native American language—are spoken here. But the universal language in Taos is art.
Taos, in north-central New Mexico, has been a thriving artists’ community since the early 20th century. One early artist in town was Nicolai Fechin, who passionately depicted the local landscape and Native Americans. WorldMark Taos is located behind his former home, which is now home to the Taos Art Museum.
Explore Taos and discover the beauty, the culture, and the people that make Taos and Northern New Mexico the Land of Enchantment. Seated in the high-desert mesa at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Taos is rich with art and steeped with history.

They are inspired by timeless traditions. 3mi.
Rio Grande Gorge Bridge
The bridge is located 650 feet above the Rio Grande winding through the rough rock gorge on each side. The bridge was built in the cantilever truss style and is the second highest bridge of its construction in the country. Below, kayakers and river rafts pass, coming out of the famous ‘Taos Box’, a class IV rapids; above, hot air balloons soar. Feel the expanse of the Wild West in front of you, and the mighty Rio Grande beneath your feet. 11 mi.
