  • It is the only access to the village of real de catorce, if you have the opportunity to visit it in traditional discovered trucks carrying tourists may observe the details of the tunnel, as a small chapel near one of the entrances. It measures more than 2 km long and does not have any ventilation, just a little artificial lighting system so that the atmosphere inside is wet.

  • Since that saw the option of travelling to Real de Catorce we were excited with the idea of passing the tunnel of Ogarrio, started in 1890 and finished 13 years later, more than two kilometers of tunnel wrought in stone passing beneath the Hill, then explained to us that some of the sides of the tunnel connecting with mines at the time of the rise of the silver. 100% recommended

  • handmade tunnel which has a length of 2300mts, since it is the main route of communication with the people, has adequate lighting and a small chapel to 100 metres of its entry. monitor entry and exit of the tunnel by the settlers since the passage is narrow and only a vehicle through sense, the toll costs 30 pesos is charged only when entering the village

  • Amazing experience!
  • A very interesting journey to enter the village of Real de 14, the most convenient way is through of the tune Ogarrio, which is used by the narrow in an only sense at the same time, for they are organized groups of vehicles at each mouth of the tunnel and through radio communication guards they agree. There is a small fee for the wages of the guardis, team and to keep lit tunnel and in good condition. The collection is worth. Locals run very fast, accelerated the vehicle that was in front of me from the beginning and I could never reach it, I lost her sight in a curve and when I got to the line, or their lights. The crossing takes few minutes, maybe 5 or 6, but in the dimness seems eternal. They tell me that when it is week week or the feast of the patron of the town there are many pilgrims, that are blocking vehicular and pedestrian, are allowed only good measure to avoid accidents.

  • The tunnel that leads to the magical Town Real de Catorce, pass through it is fun for the comments that are heard of who goes on the trucks that transported through it, who go on foot or in their private cars, you could feel a little bit of stress, combined with adrenaline and emotion to one or other side of the same.
