Let´s explore the town and archaeological site of Malinalco

Town of Malinalco:
Malinalco is set in a semi-enclosed valley, surrounded by cliffs. The houses are mostly made of adobe with red tile roofs, some of which are painted bright colors. Almost all the houses here from the finest to the most humble have fruit trees in their yards. The streets are paved in cobblestones. Breads here are often still baked in clay ovens that are heated with wood, and homemade pulque is often sold by street vendors.

Archaeological site of Malinalco:
The Aztecs conquered the area in the 1470s, and established here a sanctuary for their military elite, the Eagle and Jaguar warriors. The complex was built on the Cerro de los Idolos (Hill of the Idols), over an older ceremonial site. The main attraction of this archaeological site is the Cuauhcalli or House of Eagles, which is a building carved out of the side of the mountain. A magical place with great views over the valley and town of Malinalco :-).
