Things to do

Discover the Capilla de Tlaxcalita

If you venture into the Tlaxcala neighborhood, the old indigenous district, you will come across the Tlaxcalita Chapel. Dedicated to the Immaculate Conception of Mary, this is an 18th-century construction. Its interior walls are painted as if they were covered in a sky-blue tapestry, and the altar where the Virgin rests is a dissolving baroque altarpiece (so overburdened that you can no longer see the columns or the pilasters holding it up). Carved in wood and covered in gold leaf, this altarpiece is also home to sculpted cherubs and seraphs.
