Tlacotalpan is a magical place, an ideal spot to relax and forget the daily routine, simply perfect to rest while exploring the culture and tradition of one of the most beautiful destinations in Veracruz, Mexico.
The city of Tlacotalpan was declared Heritage of Humanity by the UNESCO because of its culture. The chapel of La Candelaria is its most representative building, combining a neoclassical altar with Mozarabic decoration.
To appreciate all the beauty of Tlacotalpan we recommend you visiting the Zaragoza park, where is the Parish of San Cristobal, a construction that shows the ebony works that have been practiced in Tlacotalpan through the centuries. Also, the City Palace, arts and crafts stores, art galleries and museums.
Some of the most important cultural places are:
The Agustin Lara Museum House, donated to the city by his wife.
The Art Garden.
Mini-Zoo Museum Don Pio Barragan, with crocodiles, turtles and pelicans.
This peaceful town gets in the party mood once a year for the celebrations that honor the Virgin of the Candelaria.
