What to expect

The tour begins in the magical town of Real del Monte, where you will cross its streets, having about 4 hours to taste (at your own expense) the delicious pastes, pulque, and heavy cream bread, tamales, and other varieties of Hidalgo’s cuisine.

The visit continues in the English cemetery, where all the graves are oriented towards England, then you will have free time for shopping and lunch. You will continue to Huasca de Ocampo, for a visit to one of its main attractions, the Basaltic Prisms. At 30 meters high, these prisms are geometric basalt columns that decorate the walls of the impressive canyon of Santa María Regla, which are bathed by the four waterfalls feeding the dam of San Antonio Regla and the Hacienda San Miguel Regla.

This beautiful hacienda of 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 extractable.

You'll finish the tour in the afternoon, returning to Mexico City.
