Arrival to the Tlaxcala center where we will visit the Nuestra Señora de la Asuncion Cathedral, considered one of the oldest and most beautiful for being unique in its kind, for having its bell tower separated from the convent complex and preserving inside a coffered ceiling in Mudejar style.
The state of Tlaxcala is identified by its great bullfighting tradition, so we will take a panoramic tour of the Jorge Aguilar -El Ranchero Bullring. It is considered one of the most beautiful in the country thanks to the tower of the Cathedral that escorts this jewel of Tlaxcala bullfighting.
Free time for lunch.
We continue to Rancho Pulquero where we will have a tour with explanation and demonstration of the different varieties of maguey, with tasting of pulque and cured pulque.
In the evening we will venture on a hike to the magical forest of Nanacamilpa where every year an incredible natural phenomenon occurs in which thousands of fireflies turn the night darkness into a spectacle of lights. Every year, fireflies visit the municipalities of Nanacamilpa to reproduce because this area of more than 200 hectares offers ideal humidity and feeding conditions for fireflies.
