1 Teotihuacán

The largest pre-Hispanic site in the country, dominated by the huge Pirámide del Sol and only slightly less huge Pirámide de la Luna.

2 Real del Monte

A lovely mountain town with fresh air, and an unexpected Cornish influence dating from the nineteenth century.

3 Puebla

Marvellous Spanish architecture and wonderful cuisine in the original home of mole poblano.

4 The Great Pyramid of Cholula

What at first glance looks like a hill topped by a pretty church, is in fact Mexico’s most massive pyramid ruin.

5 Cuernavaca

Charming colonial city that’s a favourite place to study Spanish.

6 Taxco

Once a silver-mining centre, now a silver-buying centre, this whitewashed hillside town makes a welcome stop on the road to Acapulco.

7 Malinalco

This charmingly picturesque little village is overlooked by a small but breathtakingly scenic archeological site.
