The Pena of Bernal, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast

(4.9/5 based on 90 reviews on the web)
Peña de Bernal is a 433 m tall monolith, one of the tallest in the world. Peña de Bernal is located in San Sebastián Bernal, a small town in the Mexican state of Querétaro.The porphyrytic monolith was thought to have been formed 65 million years ago, during the Jurassic period. A recent chemical analysis by researchers at the National Autonomous University of Mexico has determined that it is considerably younger, likely formed about 8.7 million years ago. Many people perform a pilgrimage to the small chapel located at the highest point accessible through hiking.

  • Rent quadbikes with guide and rear bike to take care of the car. We toured the village full of food and crafts. We went to the base of the impressive Peña the third largest in the world. At the end we ate at the restaurant Los Arrayanes. Exquisite.

  • This penalty is impressive because of its size. In addition, the town of Bernal looks like a town of the old West and the penalty matches the vision. It has good restaurants and some tours to see the monolith. A very nice place.
