Welcome to Zacatecas
The most northern of Mexico's silver cities, fascinating Zacatecas – a Unesco World Heritage site – runs along a narrow valley overlooked by a steep and imposing hillside. The large historic center is jam-packed with opulent colonial buildings, a stupendous cathedral, magnificent museums and steep, winding streets and alleys that simply ooze charm.
Different parts of Mexico boast different kinds of folk art. Know where to look before heading out on your search.
The fabled silver mining cities of central Mexico are a great place to dig into some significant (if not always so glittery) periods of Mexican history.
