In 1808 the real history of this magical town began, when the coffee bean from Cuba changed the course of this town nestled in the orchards that cover the Eastern foothills of the volcanoes of Pico de Orizaba and Cofre de Perote. The aroma of this village is of roasted coffee and just by breathing it you get excited to explore this small city characterized by its Andalusian-style spacious mansions with beautiful interior gardens. Its parks and estates surrounded by mist have a halo of mystery.

You must enter in the Garden Museum of the Orchids where you will find more than five thousand species of this lush flower.
