#4 of 9 in Historic Sites in Cuernavaca
At Cathedral of the Asencion (Catedral de la Asuncion), see how a centuries-old religious hub became a flamboyant center for celebration and family gathering. When Spain arrived to conquer these Aztec lands, their piety and influence produced many churches and monasteries around the Popocatepetl volcano, including this 16th-century cathedral. Today, the fortified place of worship serves as a gated garden that hosts traditional Mexican weddings and quinceañera festivities. The complex consists of a walled compound with the main church, cloister, baptism area, and several chapels and small churches. Local "guides" in the vicinity may offer you their services--just make sure to get your money's worth.

  • It is only in churches around the popocatepetl volcano is in the central part of the city's Catholic Cathedral. A mural depicting the story with Felipe de Jesús visits prior to in the Guidebook in 26 Saints martyred in the Japan and visited. It was the precious paintings look of that time. Far away I felt the connection between Mexico and Japan.
