Let´s explore the incredible archeological site of Chalcatzingo and the beautiful town of Cuautla together!

Chalcatzingo is a Mesoamerican archaeological site in the Valley of Morelos. The site is well known for its extensive array of Olmec-style monumental art and iconography. Chalcatzingo is estimated to have been settled as early as 1500 Before Christ. The inhabitants began to produce and display Olmec-style art and architecture around 900 BC. At its height between 700 BC and 500 BC, Chalcatzingo's population is estimated at between five hundred and a thousand people. By 500 BC it had gone into decline.

Cuautla (meaning: "where the eagles roam"), is a city in the Mexican state of Morelos. Here we can explore amongst others the Old Railway Station, that opened in 1881 and which was the scene of important events in Mexican Revolution. We can also visit the Church and Ex-Convent of Santo Domingo, founded by Dominicans in the colonial era, the Municipal Palace Church, the Ex-Convent of San Diego, built in 1528 by the Dominican friars. 2 optional places to explore are the Museum House of Emiliano Zapata, where Emiliano Zapata was born on August 8, 1879 and the Ex Hacienda San Antonio Coahuixtla, that has featured in many Mexican movies about the revolution.
