Cuernavaca: The City of Eternal Spring

If you travel to Taxco departing from Mexico City, a must-see stop for any tourist is Cuernavaca, the "City of Eternal Spring," renowned for its year-round temperate climate, lush gardens, and vibrant cultural scene. Located at little more than 45 minutes from Mexico City, this destination is a favourite for people from Mexico City for a weekend holiday.

During our tour, we will explore the city's historic center, where colonial-era buildings, ancient ruins, and picturesque plazas await around every corner. At the heart of the city lies the magnificent Cathedral of Cuernavaca, a striking example of colonial architecture dating back to the 16th century. With its towering spires and intricate façade, the cathedral stands as a testament to the city's rich heritage and religious significance. Inside, visitors are treated to a feast for the eyes with the cathedral's stunning interior adorned with ornate altarpieces, intricate wood carvings, and vividly painted frescoes that narrate tales of the city's past.

One of Cuernavaca's most captivating attractions is the collection of 16th-century murals housed within the Cathedral of Cuernavaca. These remarkable artworks, created by indigenous artists under the guidance of Spanish friars, offer a glimpse into the fusion of European and indigenous artistic traditions that flourished during the colonial period. As visitors wander through the cathedral's halls, they are transported back in time, surrounded by scenes depicting biblical narratives, religious icons, and glimpses of daily life in colonial Mexico. The murals serve as a living testament to the cultural exchange and artistic expression that shaped Cuernavaca's identity, making them a must-see for anyone seeking to delve into the city's rich history and artistic legacy.

Exploring Taxco: The Silver Capital of Mexico

Known as the "Silver Capital of Mexico," Taxco is a picturesque colonial town renowned for its rich history of silver mining and exquisite craftsmanship. Nestled amidst the rolling hills of Guerrero, Taxco boasts winding cobblestone streets, whitewashed buildings adorned with colorful bougainvillea, and stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The town's historic center is where you will find charming plazas, ornate churches, and bustling markets brimming with silver jewelry, pottery, and other artisanal treasures.

Our tour will go through its picturesque streets and also we will stop at the exquisite Santa Prisca, where you can admire the stunning baroque architecture of this iconic church, built in the 18th century and adorned with intricate stonework and elaborate altarpieces. Our tour concludes with a visit to a handcfrat workshop, where you will learn the traditional art of silversmithing.

The Silver Route: A Journey Through Time

Travel to Taxco is embarking on a journey along the legendary Silver Route, tracing the footsteps of the Spanish conquistadors who first discovered the region's abundant silver deposits in the 16th century. Among Taxco tourist attractions there are its historic mines, colonial-era haciendas, and artisan workshops, where skilled craftsmen continue to create exquisite silver jewelry using traditional techniques passed down through generations. Learn about the fascinating history of silver mining in Taxco and discover the enduring legacy of this precious metal in Mexican culture and heritage.
