Get lost in time in the middle of a rich variety of Viceregal buildings, established by different religious orders that came to evangelize the region.


Visiting the imposing, fortress-like Augustinian Temple and Former Convent of San Pablo, which gives travelers a glimpse into Viceregal Mexico. Travel through time with the temple’s collection of pre-Hispanic artifacts, paintings, and sculptures representing a variety of time periods.

As the custom dictates, head later on to the Colony and in the temple ask the Lord of Health for a blessing of health and strength. Be marveled by the beautiful Chapel of Santa Maria, located on the banks of a lagoon. The area is also home to the Temple of the Immaculate and the mysterious Holy Sepulcher or Temple of San Antonio, which are also must-visit landmarks.

Continue your tour with a visit to the Temple of the Lord of the Precious Blood of Christ, famous for its imposing bell tower and listen to the legends told about how special graces or a hundred days of blessing can be achieved, thanks to the bond between this temple and the Saint Peter Basilica of the Vatican.



Enjoy the delicious regional dishes that Yuriria offers you. Make sure to try the famous michi broth or mole de huilota, cooked with toasted chilies.


Finish your day with a walk through downtown and buy some of the traditional, locally made crafts, such as cross-stitch fabrics, petates baskets made from local, natural fibers obtained from the Tule bulrushes or hand-engraved leather goods.


If you’re visiting in December, don’t miss the feast of the Lord of the Precious Blood of Christ. You can participate in the pilgrimages, dances and masses held during the festival in honor of the image that came here in 1640.

Update on Earthquake in Central Mexico September 26th, 2017

The Mexico Tourism Board informs that tourist attractions remain open and operating in Mexico, despite damages reported in Puebla, Morelos, and Mexico City.

Museums in Mexico City have started opening normally since yesterday. Out of the 310 tourist hotels in Mexico City, all but 6 are open for business. Additionally, we are thankful to report that no other international tourism destinations in Mexico have been affected and are operating normally. Given these facts, there is no reason for visitors to cancel travel plans to Mexico.

In Puebla, all tourist attractions, including El Teleférico and La Estrella de Puebla, remain open and operating normally. The highway into Puebla as well as the airport also remain open, offering regular access to the many popular sites in the state and the surrounding areas.

Recent reports from Morelos indicated 85% of hotels and spas are operating normally, and highlighted the level of coordination and communication between Government response and recovery efforts and the INAH.

The Mexico Tourism Board, and the entire tourism industry, remains focused on ensuring visitors in the impacted areas receive any assistance necessary while continuing with their existing travel plans. Mexico’s Government at all levels continues to carry out response plans and support the individuals impacted.

Updates on the situation will be shared as new information becomes available.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

El Consejo de Promoción Turística de México informa que todas las atracciones turísticas permanecen abiertas y en operación a pesar de los daños reportados en Puebla, Morelos y la Ciudad de México.

Los museos en la Ciudad de México reabrieron sus puertas el pasado 25 de septiembre. De los 310 hoteles con los que cuenta la Ciudad, únicamente 6 permanecen cerrados y en observación por cualquier daño que pueda presentarse. Adicionalmente, les compartimos que afortunadamente, ningún otro destino en México ha sido afectado y todos siguen operando normalmente. Por esta razón, no hay motivo alguno para que los visitantes cancelen sus planes de viaje a México.

En Puebla, todas las atracciones turísticas, incluyendo El Teleférico y la Estrella de Puebla permanecen abiertos y en operación. La autopista a Puebla y el aeropuerto siguen abiertos ofreciendo conectividad y acceso a todos los sitios populares del estado y áreas cercanas.

Los reportes recientes del estado de Morelos indican que el 85% de sus hoteles y spas están prestando servicios reiterando que el nivel de coordinación y comunicación entre el gobierno y el INAH se mantienen sumando esfuerzos para la recuperación del estado.

Mientras que en Oaxaca y Chiapas también hubo impacto después del sismo ocurrido este mes, el día de hoy destinos turísticos como la ciudad de Oaxaca, Chiapas, Huatulco y Puerto Escondido siguen operando normalmente.

El Consejo de Promoción Turística de México y toda la industria turística del país, permanecen enfocados en garantizar que los visitantes de las zonas afectadas reciban toda la asistencia necesaria y continúen con sus planes de viaje existentes. El Gobierno de México en todos los niveles y las instancias gubernamentales correspondientes continúan llevando a cabo planes de respuesta y apoyando a las personas afectadas.

Las actualizaciones y el seguimiento sobre la situación se compartirán a medida que se disponga de nueva información.

Gracias por su ayuda y apoyo continuo.
