La Calavera

El Arenal

El Arenal inhabitants know it as La Calavera; however, its real name is Casa de Mariana, a country house on Exhacienda Huaxtla whose main activity was blue agave farming. Later, it became one of the town's main distilleries.

Today, La Calavera houses the Museo Interpretativo del Paisaje Agavero (Agave Landscape Interpretive Museum), whose objective is to take a journey through tequila prehispanic origins and its evolution. The exhibition includes mockups and pics of the region, as well as maps that show the land extent.

Much of its attraction is the workshops, mainly the clay one, where you learn to make clay bricks with agave bagasse; there’s also workshops of music and Mexican sign language and braille system. Once a month the Science Nights workshop is given, where visitors observe stars with telescopes in the company of Guadalajara Astronomical Society.
