Casa de Piedra

La Rumorosa

Once you cross the first toll booth in the direction of Tijuana-Mexicali, you only have to go half a kilometer to find one of the best secrets of La Rumorosa, the famous Casa de Piedra (Stone House).

It is rumored that this construction was a gift from Ex President Luis Echeverria to Maria Felix. Others believe that it exists since the times of Al Capone and that here, the gangster stored whisky barrels. The only thing certain is that the house was built in the 1950s by engineer Manuel Maldonado Sánchez, to be a luxury residence.

After being abandoned 20 years later, la Casa de Piedrae was restored to be visited by tourists. Therefore, you can appreciate its rooms connected by stacked stone walls, a pool and a terrace. The place has a vantage point to appreciate some curves of La Rumorosa.

Another true fact about la Casa de Piedra is that it operates as a geopark of the granodiorite order, commonly called granite stones that are between 50 and 70 million years old.

One way to explore it is by rappelling and climbing its rock formations. There is also a zipline circuit, interpretative trails of flora and fauna and a camping area. This last activity is only offered under previous reservation.
