Community Museum IV Centennial

Pinos

Another site that will help you better understand the development and heritage of “ La Perla del Sureste de Zacatecas” ( The Pearl of the Southeast of Zacatecas), as Pinos is also known, is located two blocks from El Jardín Principal ( The Main Garden), on the corner of Morelos and Juárez streets (next to Portal Juárez).

The building was until 1966 the “Francisco García Salinas” school for girls, although in 1994 this site was transformed into a museum where you can learn about the history of this Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) from the first settlers, the “guamachichiles”, a sedentary group of hunters and collectors who inhabited the area of El Gran Tunal and of whom different archaeological vestiges are exhibited like weapons, utensils, mortars, axes, pots, figurines and punches, even original historical documents, photographs and pieces of art that reveal to their visitors the principles of the town until arriving at the present time.

This 19th-century mansion preserves some fossil remains, maps, guns from the Revolution, and mining tools. It is definitely a site worth visiting to better understand the history of this enigmatic town.
