Route of World Heritage Architecture

Zacatecas, Durango, Nombre de Dios

"This route begins in the beautiful Zacatecas. Enjoy this colonial jewel’s architecture, museums and traditions. Join a “callejoneada” through its streets to the rhythm of the “tambora Zacatecana” and end the night at the original La Mina (The Mine) nightclub. We suggest you go up the Cerro de la Bufa on the cable car.

Following the route you will arrive at Fresnillo, a mining city that owed its boom to the abundance of silver in the area and is the home to the Santuario del Célebre Santo Niño de Atocha (Sanctuary of the Celebrated Santo Niño de Atocha). The city invites you to stroll through its quiet streets and spend a pleasant time in its Plaza del Obelisco. Do not forget to try some typical Zacatecan dish before saying goodbye to the city with the largest population and economic importance in the state.

Pueblo Mágico de Sombrerete (Magical Town of Sombrerete), like many of the towns in this area, flourished thanks to the mining boom exploiting gold, silver, lead, tin and mercury. It is a picturesque town rich in New Spanish traditions, which are still preserved to this day. Try their gastronomy such as the "brujitas", corn empanadas fried in oil and stuffed with beans or shredded meat. On this tour you will get to know the oldest town in the state of Durango: Nombre de Dios (Name of God). Here you will observe beautiful landscapes, ancient traditions, and a long list of temples, colonial buildings and delicious cuisine. Visit the chapel of San Antonio de Padua in the former Hacienda de Juana Guerra, it is a World Heritage Site and the oldest village.

The route comes to an end at Durango, famous for its relevance in the Mexico of the Revolution, as it was the scene of important feats by Francisco Villa. It has also been a mining center since the 19th century, thanks to its iron deposits located in Cerro del Mercado, one of the most important in the world. Get to know its architectural jewels made of quarry, its museums, its gastronomy and its traditions."
