Val'Quirico Tlaxcala Medieval Town | What To Do

Val'Quirico Tlaxcala Pueblo Medieval

Val'Quirico is both a real estate development and a tourist complex built on the remains of the Santa Agueda hacienda in the Mexican state of Tlaxcala. 

It looks like a city of medieval architecture influenced by Tuscany and Umbria, in Italy, and Segovia, in Spain, as Adolfo Blanca, director of this development that has been open to the public since 2015, explains.

Its alleys are paved with cobblestones and the houses were built with wood and stones, a combination that blends in with the forest environment. 


The weather is usually warm, so you can walk around in the afternoon wearing shorts or a skirt, but high heels are not recommended. There are tunnels illuminated at night with torches to give the place a romantic and old-timey feel.

Some of Val'Quirico's walls are intervened by street artists. One of the murals that stands out is "Drunk Bones" by Fuentes de Maria.

Art is not only in the streets, Del Fabbro is a gallery that exhibits photography, sculpture and contemporary painting.

There are more than 15 restaurants in Val'Quirico with proposals of cuisines from various parts of the world: Out of Africa serves crocodile skewers and buffalo burgers; at "La Posada del Rey" (El Meson de los Reyes) they prepare suckling pig or paella; and at the restaurant "La Luna sobre el Mar" (La Luna Sul Mare) you should try the pasta with truffle or pistachio pizza.

Rent a bicycle to explore the town, although there is also the option of horseback riding. By the way, the development has a track where you can take training classes.
