Tlacotalpan Veracruz by Mel Figueroa

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Tlacotalpan. significa “en el medio de la Tierra” y se localiza en el sureste del Estado de Veracruz, en la costa del Golfo de México. Es un puerto fluvial rodeado por el Río Papaloapan y fue declarado Patrimonio Cultural de la Humanidad por la UNESCO en 1998. Es famoso por su tradición pesquera y el festival anual de música jarocha, la mezcla de ritmos Andaluces, Africanos y Mesoamericanos. Distinguida por su arquitectura, la Capilla de La Virgen Candelaria es su signo más representativo, donde se combina un retablo neoclásico con una decoración mozárabe. Para apreciar toda la belleza de Tlacotalpan, le recomendamos comenzar por el Parque Zaragoza, donde se encuentra la Parroquia de San Cristóbal que muestra magistralmente el oficio de ebanistería que se ha practicado en Tlacotalpan durante siglos, el Palacio Municipal, tiendas de artesanías, galerías de arte y museos.
