Cuernavaca is know as the “The City of the Eternal Spring” because the temperature is always around 70 degrees. It is an hour drive away from Mexico City. The city is very modern but as you walk through the streets you will see many colorful colonial houses and buildings. There are also many beautiful gardens all throughout the city.
We visited this beautiful place on our way to Taxco. On our brief stop we walked through the Zocalo of Cuernavaca, saw the Palace of Hernan Cortes, and visited the Cathedral.
The Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary of Cuernavaca
This cathedral is unique in that it does not face the city’s main square like many cathedrals in Mexico do. Instead, it is located just to the south of the city in its own sealed space. The walls inside the cathedral contain seventeenth century paintings.
The Palace of Hernan Cortes
This was the former home of Hernan Cortes. It is now the Cauhnáhuac Museum and preserves the state’s history.
The Zocalo of Cuernava
Walking through the Zocalo of Cuernavaca you will see a a lot of street vendors selling delicious snacks, drinks, and souvenirs.
