  • Acolman ex-convent was a gem in the town. It was built in the 16th century and when I came to cisit the convent, Its still intact and well preserved. The entrance is $60 butbits all worth it.

  • More a fortification than a convent, front and inside interesting. Several similar convents in the region, but this one looked best.

  • This former convent is located about 15 minutes from the Pyramids of Teotihuacán, easily visible from the highway that leads to the latter. It’s construction initially finished in the 1560s it is one of the oldest extant samples of hybridized indigenous and European architectural styles. It stands at the entry of the current town of Acolman. The main church hall is deceptively spacious and very peaceful. I went in on a hot May day. The convent buildings provided a great respite from the oppressive heat. The groundskeepers will usually answer most questions you may have. There’s exhibits pertaining to the early days of the Viceroyalty of New Spain. A highly recommended stop if you have time to spare.
  • It was ok. A historic building with amazing artwork inside.
