1. From Mexico City: Taxco and Cuernavaca History Tour
The trip will begin by picking you up at your accommodation and heading towards Cuernavaca, the City of Eternal Spring, located 90 km from Mexico City. There, you will visit its impressive 16th-century cathedral, one of the first Franciscan constructions in Mexico, whose Indo-Christian style architecture will leave you amazed. After exploring the cathedral, you can enjoy a short break to admire the local handicrafts or savor a delicious coffee. The journey will continue by traveling 80 km to the charming city of Taxco, in the state of Guerrero, also known as the City of Silver. There, you will explore a replica of a mine to understand the relevance of mining in the colonial era and its impact today. Taxco became one of the first mining centers over 400 years ago. After the mine visit, you will enjoy lunch at a traditional restaurant, where you can taste a variety of typical regional dishes. Then, you will walk through the picturesque cobbled streets of Taxco, reaching the emblematic Santa Prisca church, a dazzling example of Churrigueresque baroque architecture. Our guide will share with you the fascinating history of the church and its benefactor, considered the richest man in New Spain. You will have the opportunity to visit the numerous silver shops for which Taxco is famous or simply enjoy 30 minutes of free time to explore before boarding our transport back to Mexico City. This unique experience will give you an unforgettable glimpse into the rich history and culture of Mexico.
