Pictures of Tonantzintla, Mexico by Rick Meyer

Santa Maria Tonantzintla is a short local bus trip on your way from Cholula back to Puebla. Tonantzintla, Acatepec, and Tlaxcalancingo form a trio of towns along the way that seem to have competed in producing some of the finest dislays of decorative artistry in Mexico. Exteriors use local (talavera) tile and interiors employ intricate painting and gilding.      (Pictures taken May 4, 2004)
