Description:

The adventure begins with a visit to the town of San Antonio where you can see ruins of old houses that are still standing, the main plaza where you can take a picture in the same alley of the cover of the album These days by Bon Jovi.

We will visit the regional pantheon to observe the architecture of various ancient tombs of people who lived through the golden age to know its history, we will walk approximately 10 minutios along a path to reach one of the most beautiful and best preserved chimneys, prostrate on the top of a hill.

We will continue the tour in the town of El Triunfo, a mining town that guards what was once a prosperous mining community with more than 4,000 inhabitants among Mexicans, English, Italians, North Americans and Chinese. Touring its streets we will discover colonial buildings such as the Municipal House and the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, we will walk along its paths until we reach the English Pantheon with its 13 enigmatic tombs, we will know the famous "La Ramona" chimney of almost 47 meters high, built under the design of Gustave Eiffel and we will go up to the viewpoint to enjoy a beautiful view of the town.  

We will eat in a traditional cuisine restaurant with handmade tortillas in a wood stove, whether it be traditional burritos or quesadillas with machaca, try the baggy coffee or the damiana tea.  After the food we will visit the Museum of "La Ruta de La Plata", a beautiful place where you can learn a little more about the history of mining in the area with interactive elements, videos, photographs and models where you will spend a pleasant time.  At the end we will stop at a local store of traditional regional sweets such as chimangos, cajeta, empanaditas, piloncillo, cocadas or some delicious pitahaya ice cream.
