I toured this ex-convent about 2 years ago, and it was very interesting and worthwhile. We had a guide who explained much of the history. The museum was closed (even though it was the middle of the day--that's Mexico for you). We were hoping to...More

The church and convent is a must to visit if you are in Tepotzlan. It is in the center of town and is directly connected to the Weekend market, which is also a must to visit. The building is a wonderful example of architecture for...More

This place is very cool, at times it feels a little haunted, a little dark and solitary. The gardens are well kept and on the top floor there are some amazing views of the Tepozteco. Really hated the grid in the middle though. The poor...More

As the name says, the place used to be a convent so the building is really old and worn out. However, the entrance is free and it helps you understand how the people lived there as it hosts the city's museum. Moreover, it has a...More

If you love magic and historical places this is a must. It was erected centuries ago and it's full of history.

The ex convent is no longer used by the church but it is now kept as a beautiful colonial building. Walking distance from the market it is nice to take a stroll in this colonial building that offers a bit of local history.
