Abstract. We study a w*-dense subset of the translation invariant states on an infinite tensor product algebra $\bigotimes_\Ir\A$, where $\A$ is a matrix algebra. These ``finitely correlated states'' are explicitly constructed in terms of a finite dimensional auxiliary algebra $\B$ and a \cp\ map $\E:\A\otimes\B\to\B$. We show that such a state $\om$ is pure if and only if it is extremal periodic and its entropy density vanishes. In this case the auxiliary objects $\B$ and $\E$ are uniquely determined by $\om$, and can be expressed in terms of an isometry between suitable tensor product Hilbert spaces.
