The Baroque style parish was built in the 17th century. Inside it, you will find many chapels but be sure of watching the "monolith", a prehispanic sculpture in the outside, which, according to a legend, was there to bring people to the church, when they didn't belong to the Christian religion. The legend also says that, if the sculpture is removed, the building will fall down. (You can see the monolith in the cover photo)
This historical convent was built as a plan of the viceroy of New Spain. If you have the chance, go and read the historical passages about the Dieguins and Franciscans. They had established a school and a garden. The school keeps working, now as a primary school called Eufrosine Camacho Viuda de Ávila, but the space used as the garden now is a Red Cross Hospital.
If you are interested in buying fresh fruit, veggies and meat, this market is perfect because of the variety that offers.
If you want to have fun, maybe in the weekend, I would recommend visiting "Plaza Crystal"
You can visit this beautiful place in the limits of the town.
San Martin Texmelucan is a beautiful town, you can visit it anytime, just be sure of not staying out too late. Also, i would recommend visiting it on November 11th, the feast day of the parish, to see the fireworks in the night and enjoy some music.
