Santa María Magdalena Dress Museum

Xico

To immerse yourself in the religious traditions of the Pueblo Mágico of Xico in Veracruz, you must visit Museo del Vestido de Santa María Magdalena (Santa María Magdalena Dress Museum) that exhibits just over 700 dresses that have been donated by local families and from country’s other places.

The museum is small, but cozy. The space has been displaying dresses since 1900, however, the tradition of making dresses for Santa María Magdalena is 250 years old.

It is worth noting that there are a series of rules and waiting lists before someone can donate a dress to the saint. Anyone interested should sign up for a waiting list of up to three years. Once the time comes, this person must take care of the pattern and colors of the dress that will be delivered during the patronal festivities in July.
