A maiden saw a feather drop softly on the floor. Without thinking, she put it in her womb. It did not come from a bird, but from one of the Mexica deities, who magically created a child in her womb. Thus was born the lord of Tepozteco, a semi god who
protected his people from various invasions. Its gallant figure cut in the mountain receives inhabitants and travelers, in his honor the pyramid of the Tepozteco was constructed and is known like Ometochtli-Tepoztécatl, the one of the iron ax.
Tepoztlán has been populated since at least 1,500 years before Christ and later, by Xochimilca, Tolteca and Chichimeca cultures. The Spaniards built one of the most beautiful convents in the center of the country, ruled by Dominican friars and later Franciscans.
