Cuautla

Cuautla's cultural offer is rich, so we recommend visiting the Museo del Oriente de Morelos (Museum of the Orient of Morelos) also known as Casa de Morelos (House of Morelos). This is a space dedicated exclusively to the life and work of this independence figure, since he lived there for a while.

It is also worth visiting the Casa de la Cultura (House of Culture), which was originally a private academy that became the Instituto Regional de Bellas Artes de Cuautla (Regional Institute of Fine Arts of Cuautla) at the end of the 1950s.

A good way to learn about the history of this city is by observing the murals of the Salón de Cabildos of the Palacio Municipal (Municipal Palace), these tell how the Sitio de Cuautla was and you will find characters such as Morelos, Galeana, Matamoros and the Niño Artillero.

In this building you can also find the Campana de Nuestra Señora de los Dolores (“Bell of Our Lady of Sorrows”) that dates back to 1784 and is played during the Grito de Dolores every September 15th.

You can plan your visit to coincide with one of Cuautla's many popular festivals; for example, the Señor del Pueblo de Xochitengo festival which takes place on the second Friday of Lent and includes a very popular fair with typical food and dances. From February 19th to May 2nd the Sitio de Cuautla is commemorated with a cycle of cultural and artistic activities.
