Tepotzotlán: the jewel of the Mexican Churrigueresque (VIDEO)


Tepotzotlán is a town that retains the touch of the province despite being part of the Metropolitan area that surrounds Mexico City. One of the spaces that distinguish it is the Plaza de la Cruz, whose value lies in the stone atrial cross carved with images of the Passion of Christ.

This Magical Town has the jewel of the Mexican Churrigueresque: The National Museum of the Viceroyalty, built in 1580 as the Jesuit College of San Francisco Javier. The main altar of the chapel, the church of San Francisco Javier and the church of San Pedro Apóstol in the neoclassical style stand out for their wealth, without forgetting the important museum collection inside. Do not miss the view from its viewpoint.
