Cuernavaca, known as "The City of Eternal Spring," has one of the country's oldest churches; the cathedral dates from the XVI century. From the outside, you can also see the Cortés Palace. This structure was built by Hernán Cortés in the years following the conquest of Mexico. Later, you will see the monument to Morelos, an insurgent soldier and Mexican patriot who was the author of Mexico's second stage of independence.
You will continue your journey to Taxco, a colonial city with a history dating back thousands of years. The city is built on a hill and features winding cobblestone streets, cozy squares, and a strong old-world environment that has survived hundreds of years. You will visit Santa Prisca, one of Mexico's most beautiful churches, which was built in 1759 by the French immigrant José de la Borda, who literally ran into a huge amount of silver. Taxco is well-known for its silver mines and high-end shopping. You will be able to view and purchase works of art created by Mexican artisans.
