Puebla. Tlacomulco Ixtacamaxtitlan

We cannot leave Ixtacamaxtitlan without a mention of its most unusual monument, the chapel of Tlacomulco, perched on a high local peak. 

Founded in the 16th century atop a prehispanic hilltop shrine, and also dedicated to St. Francis, the little church has been altered over the centuries, with the addition of domes and a new facade.
