Guarded by the spectacular snowy Pico de Orizaba, and nestled high in the mountains, stands a city that has created its own personality combining colonial architecture with green and colorful natural landscapes.

The Iron Palace decorates the historic center and it is –justifiably– a piece of Belgium in the center of Veracruz. Thanks to the crystalline waters of the Orizaba River that adorn the city, you can stroll along its bridges, which boast a unique touch.

The cathedral will fascinate you with its yellow facade and tile domes. As you enter, you will find an impeccable white color, backed by bright golden woods. Here you will experience serenity through the trill of birds, the singing of crickets and the breeze blowing through the tree leaves, while the aroma of coffee and wet soil floods your senses.

Come to live a unique experience in one of Mexico's Pueblos mágicos; visit Orizaba.
