Visit Taxco & Cuernavaca Outside Mexico City
Take a full-day trip out of Mexico City to admire Taxco, a unique colonial town famous for its silver works. You start this trip in Downtown Mexico City, and then you take a scenic drive to Cuernavaca, “The City of the Eternal Spring.”
In Cuernavaca, you get to take a look at the Cathedral. It’s a building from the 16th century, which makes it one of the oldest cathedrals in the whole country. Our sightseeing tour includes the Palacio de Cortés, whose building was ordered by Hernán Cortés in the immediate years of Mexico’s conquest.
You also get a view of the monument to Morelos, military insurgent and Mexican patriot, who organized and was the architect of the second stage of the War of Independence in Mexico.
Next, the tour heads to Taxco, a colonial city with hundreds of years of history. The city is nestled on a hillside with winding cobblestone streets, tile-roofed buildings, cozy squares, and a strong Old World ambiance that has survived through hundreds of years.
Visit one of Mexico’s grandest churches, Santa Prisca. It was built in 1759 by French immigrant Jose de la Borda, who literally stumbled upon a huge silver spring.
