Highlight

The peaceful city of Tehuacan is the capital of a valley rich in history. Human history and natural history. Inhabited for more than 8000 years ago, here were discovered the oldest fossils of corn, the crop that allowed man to settle and flourish the mesoamerican cultures. Trough here the Royal Road passed and that was the beginning of the city and convents, churches, markets and squares were founded. The ancients already knew the properties of its mineral waters, the same ones that we continue to enjoy today. And from the coexistence of Spanish and Indigenous, it was born an extraordinary gastronomy, which

is celebrated as a ritual every year at the Festival of Mole de Caderas.

But the valley has also given us the privilege of looking to past eras through the minerals which are exhibited in the excellent museum located in the Centro Cultural el Carmen and the abundant fossil deposits. In this amazing region, it take place the origin of the Tehuacan-Cuicatlan Biosphere Reserve, a real sanctuary of biodiversity and a paradise for photographers, with its splendid desert landscapes. A magical place that exerts a powerful fascination for the traveler.
