Nopal Circuit

Salamanca

Discover the Valtierrilla municipality nopal plantations aboard a “tractopal”—a trailer pulled by a tractor. As you pass, data that you didn’t know about this cactus so representative of Mexican cuisine will be revealed.

You will also learn about the industrial and packaging process of this plant increasingly adding new followers in the United States and Canada, countries now lucky enough to receive it even in the comfort of their markets.

At the foot of the fields you can taste freshly cut nopales and cooked right there to calm the craving and continue with the tour. Then you’ll arrive at a cosmetic factory nopal-made, where you’ll see the production processes and the infinite benefits for the skin or hair this cactus brings. In addition, you can prepare your own soap.

The third point of the journey is an organic garden, where it is possible to talk with planting responsibles about caring and harvesting. The plantations are chemical-free and at the end you can make your own stuffed stalk.

During the unusual trip, a musician with a guitar in hand will perform enlivened songs and invite the group to sing while the nopal deep green colors the fields.
