Cerro del Cabezón (Cabezón Hill)

Tlatlauquitepec

One of the emblems of Tlatlauqui is El Cerro del Cabezón, completely recognizable even from a distance. Only 15 minutes away from the downtown, it is very visited by those who like to walk among hanging bridges, hiking, rappelling, mountain biking, and even a half kilometer (0.3 miles) long zip line surrounded by pines and oyamel trees.

The mountain is a perfect setting for potholing, as it is full of cliffs and caves that shelter stalactites and stalagmites sculpted over the years by the filtration of water.

One of its most popular caves is Olinteutli since inside it has been found figurines, obsidian knives, jade beads, and skeletons dating from pre-Hispanic times and belonging to the Olmec culture.

You can also visit La Iglesia del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús (Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus) which will give you one of the best views to photograph “El Cabezón” of the town.
