In addition to the Mayas, Aztecs, Zapotecs ruins reminding the country of its history, Mexico also has a heavy colonial past. Shows are often organized to celebrate and so these moments of the past are not forgotten.

Houses are often very colourful, both in villages or in the cities. We especially liked these windows and Campeche frontages.
