I have visited several magic towns in my travels in Mexico. On Wednesday I took a bus to Calvillo, about an hour away from the city of Aguascalientes. I discovered a colorful pueblo with friendly people. I spent hours strolling through the streets and shops, and visited two beautiful churches.
The Plaza Principale was only a ten minute walk from the bus station.
It was also adjacent to Parroquia del Senor del Salitre, a magnificent church.
I wandered into the mercado and was surprised to find an escalator in this building. All mercados I’d been to previously in Mexico had stairs and ramps.
I took this pic in front of the Santuario de de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe. It gives you an idea of the steepness of the street leading up to this church,
On my walk to the museum I came across this colorful street as well as an amazing candy store. Unfortunately the museum was closed for renovations.
All too soon it was time to leave this magical town and board the bus back to Aguascalientes.
