In a village best known for its lime, tile and narrow stone streets, women in colorful scarves walk under the refreshing shades, provoking curious looks from the high ironwork windows.


VISIT THE TEMPLE OF SAN FRANCISCO, HIGH IN THE MOUNTAINS


Tapalpa, a village nestled in the Sierra Madre Occidental, is surrounded by pine forests and seduces its visitors with its simplicity and authenticity. At the gates of the main square, you can try pomegranate punch with slices of fresh panela cheese while sitting on rustic equipales and observing the beauty of the square, crowned by its kiosk. The lateral facade of the ancient Temple of San Antonio de Padua is a vestige of its vernacular architecture. The temple has beautiful wooden and tile portals that stand flanking the entrance.

WALK THROUGH THE SLOPED STREETS


Walk down the narrow stone sidewalks while discovering its fountains, each with a story and a legend; listen to the murmur of the houses through their hallways and observe the central courtyards filled with blooming pots. Look at its streets and see their slopes, with foliage among the roofs and white walls, seeming like they flow down as if it was a river going through the streets.


LISTEN TO THE MURMURS OF YESTERDAY AND TODAY


Enjoy the smell of pine tree firewood coming out of the houses’ fireplaces and find a fresh bench to enjoy a nice talk with an old tapalpense, an inhabitant of this Magic Town.
