I would have loved to take many more pictures, but my memory was insufficient, one more reminder not to forget to be well equipped. I wish you to visit this beautiful magical village that will surely make you fall in love.

The name of this Magical Village, which in Nahuatl means “place of waters and tequesquites”, alludes to the traditional thermal waters of Querétaro.

The tour begins at the Relox hotel next to the famous Rulfo bookstore, this space has a classic and very pleasant atmosphere and design to appreciate, was founded 27 years ago by Armando Zamora Pinzón, currently used as a forum, cultural events are organized, literary festivals, etc. You should definitely visit this meeting bookshop for every occasion, accompanied by reading and imagination.
In Tequisquiapan there are plenty of cafes and places to enjoy, for example, chocolate and mill.
Tequisquiapan is a city identified by its mineral baths and Spanish colonial buildings, cobblestone streets that you will find everywhere. Before arriving and discovering the beautiful pink church, you will find shops full of crafts, curiosities, art, restaurants, flowered alleys, colorful and magical.
If you can find out the reason for the red pigs, let me know…😉😅
Plaza Miguel Hidalgo
A wide iron to enjoy the view of the surroundings, you should discover the small hidden shops, craft shops, take a walk on the small train, see the music playing a set or just relax under the shade and watch the crowd.
It takes enough time to tour the center of town, it is impossible to enter each store and place, however you can stop quickly to those who call your attention.
The square is surrounded by these arcades known as “portals”…
One of the places I liked the most was the Tequis Art Gallery, if you are a fan of skulls and the pure Mexican style, here you will find it and if you have the joy of acquiring a piece, go ahead!
I did not manage to photograph more pieces since it is forbidden inside the gallery:
I also recommend this one as you will find very particular items:
Iglesia Neoclásica Santa María de la Asunción
The first impression is phenomenal, this parish church, pink and unique; it is located in Miguel Hidalgo Square. It is a temple of Catholic worship, it is dedicated to Saint Mary of the Assumption.
Its style is entirely neoclassical, the construction was completed at the beginning of the 20th century, in total went through 3 stages and a restoration. In the first stage, the beautiful chapel of La Magdalena was built in 1531, thus giving the beginning of the town, the construction originally began in 1744 with the chapel of the natives, then the chapel of Carmen.
It is full of beautiful colorful artistic details. It has Greek-style columns on the sides of the main entrance. On these are another series of columns, which hold a grand pediment.
At the top of the building is a clock tower surrounded by small columns. On the left side of the entrance, there is a bell tower of several levels. Turn back to observe the pink dome, which is the highest point of the church.
Inside there is a large central nave (which I did not photograph) with a chessboard floor that reaches the main altar. Observe the natural light that illuminates the interior as it filters through the dome. On the walls of the church, there are several paintings of saints and scenes from the Bible, as well as figures of religious figures placed in niches.
I say goodbye from the terrace with the majestic view of the pink church, I think it’s the best photograph I have.
See you soon!
