Cerro de la Bufa, Zacatecas

(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
See the city from 2,673 m (8,770 ft) above sea level on a trip up Cerro de la Bufa, a hill just east of the main urban area. The impressive, rugged spot offers uninterrupted views of the colonial city, along with a number of other attractions. Head to the museum at the top to learn about the Mexican Revolutionary War, and the battle that took place on this site in 1914. A chapel, begun in 1548 and completed two centuries later, represents another landmark atop the crest of the bluff, along with a mausoleum of the city's most esteemed citizens, an observatory, and a popular cable railway, connecting the hill to the city. Cerro de la Bufa is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Zacatecas Edition.

  • It is a place that requires some effort because there are many step and earrings to see some things, but it is worthwhile. They have an attractive extra for those who like zip line since they installed those desensos.

  • The place is suitable for a spectacular sunset from the city, after having traveled a couple of monuments and the Museum which is located right there. There is also a small crafts market. Super recommended that if they arrive by taxi it is wait for sunset will not find way back to the city.
