  • Bernal is a magical town, I consider it pretty. The traditional gorditas truth I not loved, but they are not bad. Well they say what to try everything. I chose to put the title of my article, since there is a tour that takes you through an exclusive area of the penalty and give you a more extensive explanation, but we did not get. The place is picturesque, if you cross the street to you find yourself with a staircase and go to the plaza, where you'll find crafts, food, ice cream and a very beautiful church. You can buy in these places stones of the region such as Obsidian, pyrite, etc.. I recommend to bring CAP, hat or something to cover the Sun. Prices of handicrafts are not high and the place feels very safe. I recommend leaving your car in a parking lot in the calle Benito Juarez.

  • It is a place where the walk is mandatory and climb to the top is the goal of the trip. The stunning views and the village with many details to see and buy. Ideal to do so as an exercise.
