A TOWN WHERE YOU CAN EXPERIENCE ALL FOUR SEASONS IN ONE DAY

Naolinco derives from the Nahuatl language and means "The Four Seasons" because in this place, located at 1500 meters above sea level, you can experience all four seasons in a single day. 

It is known for its well-preserved colonial buildings, cobblestone streets flanked by colorful houses adorned with wrought iron balconies, rich culture, and tranquil, picturesque atmosphere. 

It is famous for the production of footwear, textiles, and white clay art, which you can explore and purchase while navigating the ups and downs of its volcanic stone-paved streets. Especially on Doctor Rafael Lucio Street, you'll find a wide variety of leather products such as shoes, belts, jackets, and wallets of good quality and at good prices.

Another attraction is its natural surroundings, with beautiful waterfalls amid lush vegetation. 

The best time to visit Naolinco is during the Day of the Dead season when the streets are filled with altars, families cook traditional dishes, and the cemetery is adorned with candles and flowers.

Another important celebration is the patronal feast of San Mateo, where locals organize the Dance of Moors and Christians, representing the Spanish fight to reclaim Christian areas invaded by Muslims.

It is located an hour from Xalapa.
