Tlaxcala

Tlaxcala does exist! We say this because the greatness of this small state proves that any popular joke can dissipate if you put a step inside this land surrounded by culture and history.

One of the smallest states in Mexico located an hour and a half by car from Mexico City. Its weather is usually extreme, ranging from warm to temperate most of the year.

The beautiful forests and vegetation that surround this fascinating place will leave you astonished. It is the second smallest state in the Mexican Republic, but despite its size, it possesses an unparalleled greatness and richness. It is worth taking a walk through this city to get to know its architectural beauty and to admire its local landscapes.

If you are into architecture, then take a walk by “la Basílica de Nuestra Señora de Ocotlán”, located just half mile away from the Capital City. In this place, you will find a baroque-style façade, which is an admirable work that outstands for its bright and fascinating golden altarpieces.
