Full description
Enjoy the breathtaking scenery on the highway through the Sierra Madre mountains to Cuernavaca, 'the city of eternal spring' and visit the ancient Cathedral to see the 17th century murals depicting the execution of christian martyrs in Japan. The building was built around 1526, and raised to a Cathedral in 1891. This monument is a part of the group of monasteries that were declared, by UNESCO, World Heritage sites in 1994.
