#35 Convents and Palaces

The life of a monk. An extraordinary altarpiece. Art in the cloister. Mummies. Four chapels in the atrium. A fisherman bishop. The Hacienda Gardens. English landscape.

Experience

1 This tour begins in Huejotzingo, 21 km from Puebla. Here is the extraordinary  Ex-convent of San Miguel Archangel (s. XVI). Surrounding the atrium to admire the chapels in the corners. Get out to the cloister and delve into history. The former convent houses the Museum of Evangelization and invites you to walk down the long corridors where you still feel the stick over the friars, the austere cells or the great chapter house. Wherever you go, stop to admire the frescoes rescued from the walls. Finally, a surprise: the living mummies hall. If you want to eat, in front of the main entrance of the convent are restaurants. You can also taste local cider.

2 We propose you a deviation of only 12 km to reach another former convent, San Andrés Calpan, whose

atrium worth visiting. Plateresca beautiful are the cover and the four chapels-a building that is only found in the New World with its original reliefs and frescoes.

3 21 km from Huejotzingo is the Ex- estate Chautla. This Ranch, which preserves a beautiful town-indeed, many novels and movies have been filmed here, has a museum that tells the story of the property. Beyond its gardens: a lake. And presiding over the lake, an English mansion built by one of its owners, Bishop Eulogio Gillow. On the Ranch you can fish or spend a family day picnic. The ex-hacienda of Chautla currently belongs to the State and the profits go to the Institute of Public Assistance.

To reach Huejotzingo from Puebla, take US Highway 150 toward Mexico. The output Huejotzingo is about 21 km. From San Andrés Calpan Huejotzingo up, takes the path of La Soledad for 12 km. To reach the Treasury Chautla returns to Huejotzingo and take the federal highway Puebla Mexico. The farm is located on this road 4.5 km after San Martin Texmelucan. To account: Tuesdays is day flea market in San Martín Texmelucan, and travelers will find very slow traffic passing through the city.
