Tepoztlan is another of the Pueblo Magico’s that surround this history rich area of Mexico. According to myth, Tepoztlan is the birthplace over 1200 years ago of Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent god widely worshiped in ancient Mexico. It is also the location of the Tepozteco Ruins, a unique cliff top Pyramid that can only be accessed by an exhausting long, uphill trail that we did not attempt even though we were tempted by the offer of free admission for Seniorssmile_wink.

We had a great lunch and then explored the town, including the ruins of the Ex-convent of Dominico de la Natividad (a World Heritage Site) near the market. Unfortunately, we missed sampling the unique ice cream the town is famous for and I was also sorry that I had forgotten my telephoto lens! The photo of the Pyramid is a blowup of the distant shot of the mountain after some serious “noise reduction” work. You can simply click on any of my images to enlarge them.
