Welcome to Mineral de Pozos
Less than a century ago, Mineral de Pozos was a flourishing silver-mining center of 70,000 people, but with the 1910 Revolution and the flooding of the mines, the population dwindled. Empty houses, a large and unfinished church and discarded mine shafts were the legacy of abandonment. Today this tiny place is gradually winning back its place on the map. Visitors can explore the crumbling buildings and tour the fascinating surrounds – including several mine ruins – by mountain bike, horse or guided tour. As well as galleries, many craft shops are dotted around town, where community members sell their work.
