About 20 years ago people that visited Mexico City didn't know there was so much to do and see in the town that surround it. That has changed, of course, as every day more travelers are eager to take advantage of their time in Mexico and use some of it to what has been named "The Magical Towns".
These are towns that, regardless of their proximity to one of the busiest capitals in the world, they remain authentic and original. It's like a journey to the past of Mexico because each of these towns has so much history, but also its present as these towns seem to preserve Mexico's cuisine, traditions and culture more alive than its own capital.
The tour begins at the English cementery, where all the graves are oriented towards England, learn why!
Then we will have free time for shopping and lunch in the magical town of Real del Monte. We will walk around the streets showing you the best places to have pastes, pulque, and heavy cream, bread, tamales and other varieties of Hidalgo’s cuisine (at your own expense). You will have about 4 hours here so that you don't miss a thing!
We will continue to Huasca de Ocampo, for a visit to one of its main attractions, the "Basaltic Prisms”. With 30 meters high, these prisms are geometric basalt columns that decorate the walls of the impressive canyon of Santa Maria Regla, which are bathed by the four waterfalls feeding the dam of San Antonio Regla and the Hacienda San Miguel Regla.
Next, we'll head to the Hacienda of Santa Maria Regla. This beautiful building from the eighteenth century, probably the most famous of the state, belonged to Pedro Romero de Terreros, Conde de Regla, and was his favorite place for living. Nowadays part of the hull is preserved, as well as some of the arches that were part of the courts and the ovens where the silver was extracted.
We’ll finish our tour in the afternoon, returning to Mexico City.
