The one of the sleeping woman. During one of my visits to Mexico City I made a trip to the state of Morelos. On my way I meet the sleeping woman, #Iztaccihuatl . Located approximately 45 miles from Mexico City, Iztaccíhuatl is actually a volcano that is located next to another volcano, #Popocatepetl . The legend says that the volcanoes were human and were deeply in love. Popocatépetl was a young Aztec warrior, while Iztaccíhuatl was an Aztec princess. The father of Iztaccihuatl, a powerful ruler, put a demanding condition on Popocatépetl before he could marry the beautiful princess. Popocatépetl had to first fight against the rival of the tribe and return victorious. The brave warrior accepted and left for battle with the determination to return and married Iztaccihuatl. While Popocatépetl was away in battle, one of his opponents told Iztaccihuatl that his beloved had died in combat. Crushed by the false news and overwhelmed by sadness, the princess dies of a broken heart. Shortly after, Popocatépetl returns triumphantly only to discover that his beloved has died. Filled with pain, Popocatepetl carries the body of Iztaccihuatl to the mountains, where he rests his body and dies with her. Touched by lovers of eternal love, the Aztec gods turned them into mountains, so that they can finally be together. Do you know any legend of the lovers of the cross of stars? ⛰🏔 #visitmexico#visitmorelos#vivemexico#mexicanmythology#turimexico#vagandopormexico#mexicolindoyquerido#vamaonosdeviaje#vivegozaviaja#doyoutravel#wanderlust#sheisnotlost#instatravel#mexicophotography#mexicoscenary#travelblogger#mujerviajera#cronicasdemiviajechilango FOLLOW: @holasoykikis@visitmexico
