Let´s explore the archeological site Xochicalco and the city of Cuernavaca :-).

Xochicalco is a pre-Columbian archaeological site in the western part of the Mexican state of Morelos. The name Xochicalco may be translated from Nahuatl as "in the house of Flowers".

The architecture and iconography of Xochicalco show affinities with Teotihuacan, the Maya area, and the Matlatzinca culture of the Toluca Valley. The main ceremonial center is atop an artificially leveled hill, with remains of residential structures, on long terraces covering the slopes. The site was first occupied by 200 BC, but did not develop into an urban center until the Epiclassic period (AD 700 – 900). Nearly all the standing architecture at the site was built at this time. At its peak, the city may have had a population of up to 20,000 people.

Loved by its tranquility and colorful landscapes, no matter where you go you will find landscapes full of bugambilia, jacarandas, African tulips, lilies, jasmine, tabachines and daisies. Its delicious gastronomy and architecture of a colonial style will captivate you.
