Introduction

Capilla del Monte is the more mature alternative to San Marcos Sierras, where the hippie crowd that once settled San Marcos moved to when they 'grew up.' This otherwise sleepy town rose to fame in the 1930s when the first UFO sighting was reported. It has since been drawing UFO watchers from around the world who come here in the hope of communing with extraterrestrials from on top of the nearby Cerro Uritorco. The energy vortexes that are said to surround the town have been a magnet for spiritual seekers of all stripes.
