Experiencing the Beauty of Tlaxcala

 

It is photo day!

You know I have been posting about Tlaxcala the entire week.  On Monday, I wrote some facts about this mostly unknown city in Mexico.  On Wednesday, I wrote about the delicious food we found in the city.

If you have noticed, there is a missing part.  I haven’t presented details of how the city looks.  Well, I was waiting for photo Friday to do that.

In here I am presenting 29 photos of Tlaxcala.  The main sights of the city are highlighted in here.  Let me say all these sights are located in the compact historic center.  You can walk around admiring the architecture, visiting the museums and devouring dishes till your belly feels like it is going to explode.

Let me know what you like more about this interesting city.

I didn’t have time to visit the museums, see the murals in the Government Palace or admire the Ocotlan Basilica.  That is why an entire weekend is recommended to indulge into what the city has to offer.
