The first, the magnificent ex-Renaissance convent of San Martín with itsexquisite architecture, an ancient altarpiece and an interesting museum where a room is dedicated to the second great reason to visit Huaquechula: the Day of the Dead. From the Casa de la Cultura tours are organized around the houses with relatives to admire the extraordinary three-storey altars that represent life on earth and the ascent of the deceased to the heavens.
