1529 A.D. !!!!Templo de la Asuncion de Maria
Imagine , this church was built nearly 100 years before Montreal was founded ... 200years before the founding of the U.S. ...
I must confess I am doing the photos from the Christmas trip ... they are 2 months old but I just didn't have the ....technology ,time ,inclination... to do them before . It is all a good exercise for me though as I get to relive/remember some of what Mexico has to offer .
Cuernavaca is well known to many in Regina as people here have been helping the poorest of that area make life a bit easier . The city itself has attracted the rich and the powerful for centuries . Cortes built his Palicio here in 1522 and the Emperor Maximillian and his wife used the city as a retreat during their reign . It is cooler here than in Mexico City and that offers a respite during the summer months. Besides it is in the mountains and it is beautiful country .
Taxco is VERY pleasant. Built on the slopes of hills (mountains ?) most of the buildings are white . I really liked it and would have enjoyed spending a few days there. Could happen another time when I have more time to sit and not worry about getting in to the airport on time.
A Franciscan Church
Simple really . From the exterior it looks like a fortress , meant to intimidate . It is built within a high walled compound .
The pyramids surprised me !! After all I have been to Giza right ..! These aren't nearly as old (2-3000years)but they are majestic
