    Tour excellent for a day of calm. Nice place, full of tradition and mining history. The visit to the mines is a must. Bring your camera, because there will be plenty of good shots. If it comes to mine, you will be asked a fee for taking pictures and even cell phone, which find me distasteful. Upload entrance fee one or two pesos, we would save visitors discomfort and displeasure. But the views can be worthwhile, especially if you are fond of photography. Going up the street Teodomiro Manzano, and 200 metres from the square of the kiosk, you will find a small shop of pastes, still prepares it with the original dough recipe. The pastes that sold in city of Mexico and even in various places of Pachuca and Real del Monte, are made with puff pastry dough; they are empanadas. You have to try the taste of these pastes; Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of the store.
