Photos from Tepoztlan, a “Magical Town”

This weekend we drove to Tepoztlan, a smallish town about an hour from Mexico City. We stayed at our friend Susana’s mom’s house, who has a lovely home with a close-up view of the craggy, green Cerro del Tepozteco (hills) that overlook the town, which give Tepoztlan a unique look. It is officially deemed one of Mexico’s “pueblos magicos,” or magic towns.

It’s the oh-so-rainy season, so, sadly, we spent a lot of time Saturday huddled in our casita, avoiding the downpour. But when we were able to venture outside, it was lovely.

As everywhere in Mexico, there are shrines to the Virgin de Guadalupe.

There are many little churches (and I mean little!) in Tepoztlan.
