In the Matlatzinco valley have existed groups since ancient times. However, everything seems to indicate that the Matlatzincas carried out the most relevant constructions of the place. Calixtlahuaca was subdued by the Aztecs who rebelled in different moments. It has one of the largest round buildings dedicated to Ehécatl-Quetzalcóatl (God of the Wind), in addition to a calmecac, a school of religious teaching and military training for the young people, and other structures worthy of admiring. Later, we’ll go to the former convent of Tecaxic, current church for Our Lady of Angels. Here, like in any other 18th century building, the presence of the native hands is seen in the stone carving of saints that decorate the façade, the hour glass located in the atrium and the atrium cross, and the walls and columns as well.
