This beautiful city is currently the capital of the state of Tlaxcala. Thanks to its many qualities, it has become a National Heritage Site, as well as the City of Peace. Among the many plans that you can make during your stay are the walks through illustrious places of the area.

First of all, you can take a museum tour to learn about the history of the capital. For example, the MUVART, the Museo Vivo de Artes y Tradiciones Populares (Living Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions) is a must to admire handcrafted objects.

It is advisable to visit the religious buildings scattered throughout the territory, as they were and still are very important culturally. One of them is the Cathedral, which is very close to the San José Parish. You can also visit the Basilica of Ocotlán, which although it is farther away, it will be worth it if you like to contemplate the architecture of these buildings.
