Tecamachalco

Tecamachalco has several religious temples of an important cultural and artistic tradition like the Franciscan Ex-Convent, built in the XVI century. It was raised by the Popolocas and its main feature are 28 hand painted medallions at the choir loft. These medallions describe scenes from the New and Old Testament.

This Alaseca church was built in a way that the mass can be celebrated in direct orientation to Rome, Italy. It possesses 5 altarpieces, three of them made in wood and two more made in mortar. These altarpieces are in excellent conditions and describe scenes from the Purgatory and The Passion.

Once here, don’t forget to visit the Casa del Conde which was inhabited by Alonso Valiente, the first encomendadero of Tecamachalco.

You shouldn't go without visiting La Fundicion, a big construction that runs all the way from El Salado to Tecamachalco. This construction was used for carrying lead from the mines to the city. This material was used for making ceramics, glass and glue. It was also used to make weapons and coining.
