I´m proud of my country ancient history, but Tlaxcala is simply amazing. You can see what I told you visiting the "Palacio de Gobierno", a government building where you can learn about how "tlaxcaltecas" build the foundations of México trough the "mural" that is a big wall plenty of colorfull pictures beginig since the conqueror to the Mexico independence war... I hope you enjoy it

One of the most elaborate baroque churches we've seen in Mexico, which is saying a lot! Several artists were working on scaffolding, restoring the gilding around the altar. We were there the week after a fiesta of the Virigin of Ocotlan, and pilgrims were praying to her large, beautifully dressed statue to be cured of their ills. It was a moving experience.

Excellent experience, I hired Mexico Viejo tours and they took us to a very safe place and not to crowded were we had great time.
Sight seen is amazing, depends on the weather conditions, take coat, raincoat and walking shoes to walk around the forest.
It is a 45 mins. experience but the wait worth it.
I saw some places to camp.

There was a lot more traffic since my last visit and there were ongoing roadworks on several streets that made it worse. This is one of the less visited colonial capitals by foreigners and it is certainly worth a day or two, especially considering its importance in the story of the conquest. To get away from the hustle and bustle walk up the cobbled hill to the Cathedral, possibly the oldest church in the country, and which has a beautiful mudéjar style ceiling and the pulpit from which the first sermon in the New World was supposedly preached.

Free and only takes a few minutes to visit . . . well, our few minutes stretched into 30, but we loved it. Fascinating overview of the history of the area. I didn't understand most of it until we hired a guide the following day and found out the history behind some of the murals. I wish I had done a little Reading first. The photos here are very good so I didn't add any new ones.

We never thought Tlaxcala was like what we saw, very clean, well maintained, small city, cute. It was a pleasant surprise to notice this place, excellent for a weekend and this tour drives you to the important points with a certified fun guide. Besides you can have tastings of mole, bread, pulque. Well invested time and money.

This museum, located inside the Ex-Convento Franciscano de la Ascunsion, did not do a whole lot for me. The collection consists largely of rather dreary and typical religious art. There are better museums in Tlaxcala, a very pretty but frankly dull town.

The most famous of sites are Cacaxtla and Xochitécatl, but I like this one better. It's not crowded, they have a good museum, and the constructions are well kept. I felt very peaceful in peace in this place, I even rested with my family on top of one of the pyramids all by ourselves.
It's a little far away from the City of Tlaxcala, but if you like prehispanic archeology, you may like this place.

El zoologico no e smuy grande, pero la entrada es bastante comoda, los niños se divierten, tiene zona de juegos infnatiles y un pequeño laguito para remar, pero lo que más me sorprendio es que tienen 3 leones blancos y esos estan ya declarados como extintos
