DESCRIPTION – Zacatecas: City of silver and quarry
In the heart of the country is the Ciudad de Plata y Cantera (City of Silver and Quarry), where its roses quarries create a variety of streets and historic buildings and take us to the mines that gave rise to the city. In this guided tour by an architect, we can enter them and explore a reinvented natural architecture, which has even created a great night club with the latest technologies. Zacatecas will show us one of the most baroque cities in the country and America: spectacular museums in old convents, prisons with current architectural programs and a thousand places to discover, between silver and rose quarry, a city full of light, emotion, history and culture.
With the company and guide of our local architect, we will visit the Government City of Zacatecas by Arditti Arquitectos, the Pedro and Rafael Coronel Museums, the Manuel Felguerez Abstract Art Museum, the Quinta Real Hotel and the Mesón de Jovito, as well as the Franciscan Convent from Guadalupe. We will also focus on baroque architecture, visiting the churches of Zacatecas. We will take the cable car to observe the Cerro de la Bufa and the Mina del Edén from the top.
