The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Taxco. A short trip

Posted by Picasa

Taxco is a beautiful city in Mexico built on a hill in Guerrero. It is rich with old and new silver mines, it has narrow streets and hundreds of silver shops. It is off the toll way but it is worth the drive, it is between Acapulco and Mexico City.
The building of most importance is the temple of Santa Prisca found in the heart of the city, on the west side of the main square called Borda. The construction took place between 1751 and 1758, under the supervision of don Diego Duran. The work, both in it's magnificent façade as in it's beautiful interiors, is considered as one of the best and most extraordinary samples of the Mexican churrigueresque style. Inside it is possible to admire a rich ornamentation based on altarworks and paintings, these ones coming from the brush of Miguel Cabrera.
