Zozocolco de Hidalgo

The colonial past of Zozocolco is preserved in its constructions like the San Miguel Arcangel Parish, built in the year 1600 by the Franciscans. It is located in the Swallow Hill, precisely this is the place in which a gold and silver image of San Miguel appeared.

The guardian of this town is a watch, installed in one of the towers of the temple in 1929. You can see it from practically any place.

You can explore the place to find the typical dishes of Zozocolco, like banana gorditas–an important fruit in the Veracruz community– or mole or maybe, if you are feeling adventurous, a barbacoa. Don't return home without trying some egg bread and carrying with you fresh vanilla and coffee from the region.

One of the oldest traditions in this Magic Town is the wax work. You will be able to either buy or admire special pieces made with this material. You can also find beautiful pieces made in wood.
