“An Hour in Tepoztlan”

Ex Convento Dominico de la Natividad
Ranked #3 of 15 things to do in Tepoztlan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 May 2014

The ex-convent and church are in the center square of the town, and it's an interesting site to start off your day in Tepoztlan. It takes around an hour to walk through, and the old murals on the walls are absolutely stunning. There are also nice views of the town from the upper level of the ex-convent. When I went in May 2014, there was some artwork on display (not sure if it's a permanent exhibit) throughout the ex-convent that didn't seem to fit at all with the rest of the structure. It was interesting modern artwork, sure, but didn't seem to flow well with the rest of the experience. (See in uploaded pictures). Still, if you are genuinely interested in the history here, this is the place to visit.

Fascinating to walk through this former convent and experience the facets of their lives as they lived here. Very interesting historically. Great gift shop at the end.

The Ex-Convent Dominico de la Natividad In Tepoztlan is located on the church grounds of the largest church located near the farmers and craft market in the center of town. This site is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. It is very beautiful with archways and decorated halls that are quite unique. There is also a viewing area on the top floor in the rear of the convent that gives you a great vantage point for seeing the pyramid on the mountain top. This location also has a small museum and gift shop as well as a cute courtyard with fountain and fruit trees. I enjoy the serenity of this location and visit as often as I come to Tepoztlan.
