At 2,500 meters above sea level and over the mountains area surrounded by forest, is Tlaxco.
Explore its unique contrasts of both a quiet and bustling village. Feel its semi-cold climate, its semi-arid landscapes with beautiful wooded areas, its old history, and its current culture. As in a time machine, feel the historical becoming, very rooted in the personality of the inhabitants and corners of this population. 


FEEL THE COLONIAL ATMOSPHERE AND PORFIRIAN EVOLUTION
Enjoy its remarkable architectural richness. Visit the San Agustín Parish Church dating from the 17th century, and whose pink quarry stone cover is characterized by its empty niches and absence of buttresses, or the El Calvario Chapel with a huge staircase or other sacred buildings, originally from the 19th century.


VISIT THE FORMER HACIENDA OF  SANTA MARIA XALOSTOC
This magnificent hacienda received the national award for historic restoration. Get into the legends living in the granaries, in the tinacal, in the machero, in the chapel, in the calpanerías and in the house of the landowner. Imagine the region's boom when, in colonial times, the settlement of cattle ranches proliferated.


TASTE THE PULQUE AND THE BASKET CHEESES 
Give your palate a taste of the magnificent basket cheeses produced in the village and the award-winning pulque of the house.
