In a village of lime and tile, of narrow stone streets, women in rebozo walking through fresh shadows and reddish overalls and provoking curious looks arising from the high smithy windows.
 

GET TO THE TEMPLE OF SAN FRANCISCO THERE ON THE TOP OF THE SIERRA


Tapalpa, a village located in the Sierra Madre Occidental surrounded by pine forests seducing visitors with its simplicity and authenticity. 
In the main square portals, you can taste a pomegranate punch with slices of fresh panela cheese; from the comfort of some equipales, observe the beauty of a square crowned by the kiosk. The lateral facade of the ancient San Francisco Temple, vestige of its vernacular architecture, has wooden and tile portals flanking a dynamic landscape with its people on the move.
 

WALK ALONG THE STREETS UP AND DOWN


Get familiar with the origin of stories and legends by walking narrow stone sidewalks; listen through the hallways the whispers of the houses with their central courtyards laden with blooming pots. Look out and watch the fall of streets sliding like streams of stones among red foliage of roofs and walls covered by a white light. 
 

LISTEN TO THE WHISPERS OF YESTERDAY AND TODAY


Be caressed by the streets with the aroma of pine wood coming out from their chimneys, and find a fresh bench to enjoy the pleasant talk of an old Tapalpa man.
