AAA Editor Notes

Tizatl&#225;n Ruins are about 4 km (2.5 mi.) n.e. of town via Mex. 117-D to the Tizatl&#225;n turn-off. A wool-weaving settlement established by the Tlaxcaltecs in the mid-14th century, Tizatl&#225;n developed into a major trade center. The ruins include a palace built on a small platform and small sanctuaries with murals painted on the altars. These paintings depict wars with the Aztecs, who failed in their attempt to conquer the Tlaxcaltec nation.</br>
