  • Xochicalco means "in the place of the House of Flowers". There Is an astronomical observatory in a cave, in this one, it is seen in the sun entering by a vertical duct of small dimensions punctured in the rock, in the same the Nahua sages carried out their studies, no access is currently due to the earthquakes of the year 2017. We have been impressed by the Temple of Feathered Serpents, where the Great Quetzalcoatl Ouroboros is masterfully represented with great Mystical and astronomical and religious relevance. It Is said that on the site there was a Great convention of Sages of the Mayan, Zapotec and Nahua Cultures through which They made calendar adjustments, Imagine a Great Astronomical Congress celebrated more than 1000 years ago! It'S been a fascinating visit! Useful Data:-weekends leave Cuernavaca buses to the archeological zone. -During the week they leave you on the cruise and from there you take a taxi that takes about fifteen minutes. Enjoy Xochicalco because: LIFE... It's a TRIP!

  • The buildings have been well restored and allow viewing of the careful architecture pre Hispanic as well as complex society that built it. As in several other archaeological sites of Mexico, it is possible to climb the pyramids and other buildings and observe, in some cases, the plot of its interior. Very interesting. This adds a small but well organized, pleasant and informative Museum. A nice walk for which it is best to bring a hat and sunscreen.
