As I mentioned on Friday (in my post about Tepoztlan,) last week I had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful city of Cuernavaca. The city is located about an hour south of Mexico City. I used to visit this city now and then back when I lived in Mexico City.
Cuernavaca has a small but beautiful colonial city center, and the entire city is defined by traditional Mexican architecture, fountains, parks and plenty of trees and green areas. With warm, sunny days (almost always!) and comfortably cool evenings, it really deserves the name of “city of eternal spring” as many Mexicans know it. The steep, hilly landscape marked with many buildings made of volcanic stone make the views of the city very picturesque!
The following are some pictures. Enjoy!
To start off, these two pictures are of the hotel where I stayed:
This is the main city square …

Hernan Cortez, the famous Conquistador of central Mexico, built a palace in Cuernavaca, which still stands in the heart of the city and is now a museum:
These two are typical colonial streets in the old town:
This is one of the many beautiful old churches:
Fountains like this adorn many corners, parks and streets:
If you ever get a chance to do some sight-seeing in Cuernavaca, I suggest you do so!
