Zacatecas has its origin as a mining state, because its foundation was precisely due to the silver deposits discovery, around which the city developed. Thus, it also became one of the main economic centers of Nueva España. To learn more about Zacatecas mining, it is recommended to get on the train that goes into the depths of El Edén mine. Its tunnels are full with stories and legends, a museum and the unforgettable experience of visiting a real mine.
