Fodor's Review

The place where the Aztec emperor Cuauhtémoc was held prisoner by Cortés is reputed to have been rebuilt in the 18th century from the stones of his original house. Now a sandy color and topped by two coyote figures, it's used for municipal government offices; a small tourist bureau at the entrance provides maps and leaflets publicizing cultural events in the area. Usually you can wander through the wide arches to the cute tile patio.
