El Mirador

Viewpoint in Álamos

This magnificent lookout tops a hill on Álamos’ southeastern edge, affording sweeping views of the town and its mountainous surroundings. It’s accessible by steps (370 of them) from the Arroyo Agua Escondida, two blocks down Obregón from Victoria, and is best climbed first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon, when the light is better and the heat not so fierce.
