Tlaquiltenango

"
In the escalated walls"

  The town of Santo Domingo Tlaquiltenango in the State of Morelos, Mexico, appears as tributary to the Aztecs in the tax register. The construction of the Convent and Temple dedicated to Santo Domingo, ended in 1540.

In the year 1909, a pre-Hispanic Codex was discovered in a corner between the Cathedral and the Convent. It had been hidden behind a thick layer of limestone and paint. Dominican friars had used the Codex to cover a Franciscan fresco. Today this document is conserved in the National Museum.
