About Zacatecas, Mexico
A Colonial Jewel in the Heart of Mexico
Zacatecas is the capital city of the state. It is a beautiful colonial jewel that served as a mining center at the time of the conquest. This region has very extreme geography and irregular terrain that has created a natural beauty of varied landscapes around the city.
Its beauty has earned it a spot on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, a distinction given only to places considered to be of exceptional interest and universal value.
Some of the most interesting places to visit are the Zacatecas Cathedral, a majestic construction, the San Francisco Church and Convent that today is the “Rafael Coronel” Museum, and the Santo Domingo Church and Cloister that is now the “Pedro Coronel” Museum.
The Eden Mine is the main attraction in Zacatecas. It was once a rich gold, silver, zinc and lead deposit and is now a very interesting tourist attraction that even has a disco inside.
One activity that should not be missed is the cable ride up to the city summit. From here you can see the amazing landscape of the irregular urban layout.
