A distinctive feature of Pluma Hidalgo is its intangible legacy that is depicted in legends, stories and myths. The oral tradition of this community is protected by the elderly who transmit their knowledge and fantasies from generation to generation.

LISTEN TO WHAT THE PLUMA HIDALGO SETTLERS SAY

Sit down next to a local to have a coffee and listen to how this place was named after the priest Hidalgo, who passed by many years ago, left a feather that remained still in the atmosphere and did not fly in the wind. Imagine that on the top of the hill that feather appears when people who are spirit free and thirsty for adventure pass by.

ASK THEM TO TELL YOU THEIR LEGENDS

Ask the villagers to tell you a story of those that the eldest settlers share. Feel the adrenaline and the fear that slightly flows the blood in your body. Value how traditions intertwine together among myths, tales and legends. Ask a villager to tell you the Matlacihuatl legend about a woman with guajolote legs; or listen to the Leyenda de los Tambores while enjoying a warm coffee.


Feel the intangible heritage of Pluma Hidalgo and be part of this collective memory promoting the oral tradition among children and young people here where the fog becomes a veil with coffee aroma, where stories are woven to remember and live.
