From the first time I visited this city I fell in love with it and when you visit you will see why. It’s hidden behind a mountain and once you drive through and exit on the other side, its like a whole world is hidden behind the mountain. it is also a UNESCO World Heritage City.

My friend Claus Andersen just visited as he rides his bicycle all over Mexico and shared some of his photos with me. All photos here are provide by him. Check out his travels at http://travellingclaus.com/
