What Makes Them Magical

Situated around what was one of the largest pre-Hispanic cities in Mesoamerica, these two Magical Towns combine ancient and colonial culture. The food is fusion of pre-Hispanic and Spanish cuisine. It’s where the chiming church bells blends with the percussion of the huéhuetl. They offer a chance to learn about ancient history through the life of these two towns.
