Mazamitla is a Pueblo Mágico (Magic Town), a place filled with cobblestone streets, red tiles running through white walls, and baseboards that guard the stories of its inhabitants. In the main square, the San Cristobal Parish Church rises with a modest whiteness to demonstrate its evident oriental style in an environment laden with mountain architecture.

Let yourself be seduced by the streets of sun and stone. Immerse yourself in them and their flaps, and take a look at their houses from the entryway. Admire the internal courtyards loaded with flowers and plants with long stems and wide leaves. Be captivated by the singing birds and savor the aromas that travel from the wood-fired stove that announce that it's time to eat.

Just a few more steps and you will find shop windows filled with regional products: fruits in syrup, pomegranate punch, dulce de leche, and fresh and aged cheeses that suggest a pairing with a tequila while relaxing in wicker chairs and enjoying a good conversation before the meal.

This peaceful, friendly mountain village receives its visitors in streets in which you can see pots of chrysanthemums, Lilies of the Nile, calla lilies, and Gerbera daisies in the windows of their houses and on their wrought-iron balconies coloring their inhabitants strolls as if it was an eternal celebration of lights and colors.
