What to do in Val’Quirico, the medieval town of Mexico

This town built from scratch has become an ideal place for rest, family walks and getaways with friends.

Who would think that the smallest state in Mexico would be home to a medieval town? It is not an occurrence, it is a real estate development located in Tlaxcala, whose facade takes you back to the Middle Ages in the XXI century: Val’Quirico is 24 kilometers from Puebla and looks like a European countryside. Although it is not a magical town , it has its charm and is ideal to take advantage of a weekend walk.

The name means in Spanish Valle de Quirico, same that venerates Saint Quirico. The foundations of this complex arise from what was the former Hacienda Santa Águeda, whose origin dates back to the Porfiriato; back then it was fertile land for agriculture. Five years ago, a group of shareholders converted the land into the Val’Quirico project and transformed the surrounding landscape by taking inspiration from Tuscany.

The town is divided into neighborhoods: Downtown, Bosques, Laureles and Fresnos; In each one there are different entertainment and gastronomy amenities in case the family falls on an
express walk , but one of the long-term bets is accommodation and residence. You will come across cobbled paths, walls that simulate antiquity and a lot of vegetation. Pay attention to the little details that do the magic: ironwork on the windows, large wooden doors, creepers at every corner, and lanterns dangling between alleys.

The trip from CDMX is two hours. Once arriving, take advantage of that time sitting in the car with a walk through the zócalo, a bicycle tour (they rent them) and even a horse ride: here is the Valquirico Equestrian Center, where they offer a boarding house with stables, a route in carriage and equestrian events.

Another curiosity of this town is the Del Fabbro University, an institute specialized in the real estate industry; To enter the classroom you must go through a wall hidden between the books in your library. In addition to countless photographic points, there are also mystery adventures thanks to the 59 Minute Escape Room in King Arturo format (family rally to escape the dragon) and Time Machine Studios (photographic studio with a civil war theme, room of the twenties and more) .

If you’ve already made up your mind to have an apartment here, head to La Teta Abundantia (portion of a bronze sculpture recovered from Italy) and place your hand on the bust to augur abundance and prosperity.
