Locatie en vrije tijd

Atlatlahucan is a small town with quite a few traditions and festivals all year around. The monastery of San Mateo Atlatahucan was founded by Fray Jorge de Avila of the order of the Augustinians (1570?), who also founded the temples and of Tlayacapan, Ocuituco, Yecapixtla, and Totolapan. All these monasteries are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.


Over the last 13 years, the World Heritage Volunteers (WHV) initiative has grown tremendously due to increased interest and appreciation for the protection and preservation of World Heritage sites. One of the objectives of the municipalities where these heritage sites are located is to attract more tourism, complement the development actions of each of the towns and value the local tangible and intangible heritage. It is proposed with this program to implement innovative actions by national and international volunteers that contribute to the awareness of local populations about the importance of preserving local cultural heritage. Supporting the preservation work of the 16th century ex-convents on the slopes of Popocatépetl, it is also intended to involve the care of the heritage sites to the young people of Morelos who live in the communities where these ex-convents are located, as well as to involve society. civil in the tasks of preservation and care of heritage.


Interest in cultural heritage issues and ease of adaptation to mobility dynamics during the project. Bring material from your country or state, as well as some traditional items to show the local people about your culture. Be open to learning and recognize the values of others and be willing to work in a team and community life.
