Once we pick you up from your hotel. We will go to Taxco. Admire its winding stone streets, Spanish-style homes with red-tile roofs and booths selling colorful pottery. Admire the immaculate Baroque facade of the Santa Prisca cathedral, a church that towers over the charming city. If you're in the mood for shopping, pop into one of the city's many jewelry stores. These distinctive boutiques offer handmade baubles created with silver from the local mines. Learn about the history of the silver industry in Taxco, the oldest mining center in North America. From here, we will drive to Xochicalco, an ancient archaeological zone declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Reach the emblematic Temple of the Feathered Serpent. Before leaving the pre-Columbian world behind, make sure to visit the astronomical observatory. Step inside to see the space where—from April through August— bright rays of sun penetrate the cave like laser beams.
