Chocomundo El museo Historia del chocolate Visita el museo

The history of Chocolate is truly fabulous. There is no other food emerged from the meeting of two worlds and created by the union between the Gods and men.

In our Chocolate Museum we wanted to represent the most important moments in the spreading of chocolate through these watercolors, which, moreover, will serve to illustrate the History of Chocolate that we are preparing.

In the begining, when Gods descended to Earth, one of them, Quezalcoalt, according to Aztec mythology, made the cacao tree grow in the place where his mother's blood had been spilled by her enemies, and gave it to men.

From that moment, the various Mesoamerican peoples passed their knowledge of the tree and its fruit from generation to generation. At the begining they only used to suck white flesh of cacao beans, ferment them to achieve an alcoholic drink, or press the beans to get cocoa butter, to use it as ointment or fuel.
