Real de Catorce
Few are the places in the country where almost by chance there is a convergence of races, creeds and languages as in this town surrounded by myths, legends and fantasies. Here it is common to see Mexicans from different social strata intermingled with foreigners of any nationality, who largely come with the hope of meeting the Huichols, one of the most mythical ethnic groups in Mexico. Although the truth is told: Huichols rarely walk through the steep, cobbled alleys of this town.
