Cave painting

Tlaxco

For more than ten thousand years the area where Tlaxco sits today has been inhabited. The earliest settlements testimony can be seen in some caves surrounding the Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town).

La Peñuela camp, 22 kilometers from Tlaxco, besides offering the opportunity to practice adventure sports, has cave art samples. To be able to observe the paintings settled on the volcanic rock, you need rappelling five meters down to get the cave bottom, where the paintings are.

Another sample is found on Rancho La Gloria grounds, located near La Ciénaga community, about nine kilometers from La Peñuela (along a very winding road). There you can see 60 glyphs that have been reported to the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (National Institute of Anthropology and History) since 1984.
