Xicotepec de Juárez

Magic Town, Sierra Norte

Ancestral rituals in the green setting of the Sierra.
Xicotepec is the destination for an ideal getaway where you can enjoy traditions in the countryside. This Magic Town has the honor of having been the capital of the Mexican Republic for three days in 1920.

Ceremonies of yesteryear coexist with the traditions of colonization, the ceremonial center La Xochipila, the Parish of San Juan Bautista or the monumental Virgin of Guadalupe, the largest in the world with its 30 meters, are part of its great tourist attractions.

In this region shamans, sorcerers and all the ethnic groups of Puebla come together to honor San Juan Techachalco - the god Xochipilli- in a great celebration with dances and music, with the bright color of the cempasúchil flowers.
