What Makes It Magical

The Sierra Madre Oriental shelters Zozocolco, in the north of Veracruz. Natural pools and rivers fill its surroundings whilst the town center is dotted with white sandstone buildings. This Treasure of Totonacapan has kept its traditions, language, clothing and gastronomy alive. The Festival of St Michael Archangel, the Day of the Dead and the International Festival of Chinese Lanterns are evidence of the strong presence of its Totonaca roots.
