Cosmovitral is in an amazing Art Noveau architecture structure and also it's famous for its flora and noted for its stained-glass panes that encircle the upper-story of the building depicting the cosmos. It is open Tuesday to Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m and the entrance is very cheap. There are guided tours to explain the Cosmovitral's stained glass and art exhibitions are hosted regularly.
On the top of the volcano,there is a flower (I don't remember the name),but it only grow here and nowhere else in the world.And it grows here on very bad ground and in very bad conditions.Don't think that I am crazy about the flowers,but this one is intereesting.
On some 4500 m,near Toluca is one dead volcano.You can see it form anywhere in the city.On the top are some lakes,and believe me,it is one the most pritiest sights I have ever seen.So,go up and see why was filmed here "Conan 1",and wear soemthing warm,becouse up you are above the clouds.
Downtown Toluca is a happy place to wander around: shops, restaurants, performers, about a half dozen old churches, government offices. There are also about a half dozen museums close by: art, stamps, coins, etc. Within a few blocks east or west there are public parks for the kids. This is a romantic place for a couple to walk around, or a fun place to bring a five year old for an afternoon.
This is a rich city and downtown is quite clean by Mexican standards.
Toluca has a non-active Volcano 30 miles away, of course you can see it from the city, but the nice part is that you can go to the top in your car, and see the lake that is in the crater. is a half day tour, that of course you will enjoy and you will take nice pics.
Don't you miss the opportunity to go inside the Toluca Cathedral. It is very beautiful inside and it has an amazing architecture.
Toluca's Cosmovitral is reason enough to make the trip. It's a botanical garden housed in an art deco building -- literally dripping with stained glass.
