Hacienda El Ojo del Milagro


From Villa Unión you have to head towards Francisco Zarco town in Poanas (just 37 km from Guadalupe Victoria city) to find one of the most popular tourist attractions in the area—Hacienda Ojo del Milagro.

As a curious fact, the hacienda name comes from a legend that says construction belonged to Spanish conqueror and Nombre de Dios’ mayor Don Sancho Ximénez, who was very concerned about the droughts hitting his lands. Although he asked the Zacatecan Indians for help, they refused, so he prayed to Our Lady of Mercedes begging for a miracle. While riding through its territory, the leg of his horse got stuck in a quagmire and a water hole came out when he freed it.

This historic site has been remodeled so that visiting families can lodge in one of hacienda 15 rooms, or enjoy a country weekend by renting a cabin. Have activities such as rappelling and climbing, riding in the nearby places on mountain bikes, ATVs, riding a horse or simply tasting typical dishes.
