Tepotzotlan - Capilla Doméstica



Tepotzotlan

The town of Tepotzotlan is 45 kilometers north of Mexico City in the Estado de Mexíco. Located on the town's large central plaza, the former noviate school and adjoining Jesuit church of San Francisco Javier now make up and house the Museo Nacional del Virreinato.

In 2002, Mexico's Secretariat of Tourism added Tepotzotlan to the list of Pueblos Mágicos (magical towns).

Capilla Doméstica

From a second story corridor of the Museo Nacional del Virreinato, an entrance way leads into the chapel, sitting between two courtyards. Originally built, beginning c. 1605, for the exclusive use of the the resident novices, it was remodeled in the XVIII century.
