At 3,800 meters above sea level, the Wixaritari erected the Cerro del Quemado Ceremonial Center. It is made up of three concentric circles made of stone and they will remind you of other buildings for ritual purposes around the world. 

STARTING THE HORSE RIDING 


Locate the so-called caballerangos -grooms-, authorized to give you a horseback ride, from downtown streets to the Wirikuta Sanctuary. Cross the semi-desert landscapes with a variety of palm trees and diverse species of cacti present standing an extreme climate in certain seasons of the year.

MEET THE FIVE SACRED POINTS


Check out why the Huichols state that the universe was formed there, and start the original route including the five sacred points of the Wixárika people: San Blas, in Nayarit; Cerro Gordo, in Durango; Santa Catarina y Chapal, in Jalisco, and Wirikuta, in San Luis Potosí.

BE SURPRISED BY THE ROCKY FORMATIONS


Take a camera with you and record what seems to have been the path of the giants who left huge stones behind them on top of each other during the creation of the cosmos. Testify a scenario where legendary gods were petrified in hills and glens in the midst of the astral battle.

ENJOY THE SIERRA AND THE BAJÍO VIEW


From the top of the most sacred mountain of Wirikuta, you will find great views and one another improvised altar. Do your personal ceremony and indulge in meditation.
