Zacatecas City

Zacatecas City is a colonial gem, home to 300,000 people and located in northern Mexico. Capital of Zacatecas state, the city was built between two hills (El Cerro and La Bufa) at an altitude of 8,200 feet.

Its splendor is due to its role in silver production. The mine at Cerro del Grillo has guided tours showcasing how miners worked during the Colonial era. At night, the mine serves as one of the country’s most unusual discos.
