Summary of The Day: Take a full-day excursion to Cuernavaca and Taxco to see a completely different side of Mexico.
First stop is Cuernavaca, or City of the Eternal Spring, whose temperate climate has made it a popular retreat since the Aztecs for royalty and the elite, and more recently, for those seeking fine dining and a good spa treatment far away from the hustle and bustle of Mexico City.
In Cuernavaca you will take a look to the Cathedral, which is the seat of the Catholic diocese of the same name in Mexico. It’s a building of the sixteenth century, which makes it one of the oldest cathedrals in the whole country. Our sightseeing tour includes the Palacio de Cortés, which building was or-dered by Hernán Cortés in the immediate years of Mexico conquest. And finally the monument to Morelos, military insurgent and Mexican patriot, who organized and was the architect of the second stage of the War of Indepen-dence in Mexico.
Later, this tour will head to Taxco, a colonial city with hun-dreds of years of history. The city is nestled on a hillside with winding cobblestone streets, tile roofed build-ings, cozy squares and a strong Old World ambiance that has survived through hundreds of years. Visit one of Mexico's most magnificent churches, Santa Prisca, built in 1759 by French immigrant Jose de la Borda.
Taxco is known the world over for its quality silver mines and shops showcasing silver pieces wrought by distinguished local craftsmen.
