Glorious mining past that is reflected in its architecture
It is one of the most picturesque towns in the center of the country. The old mining town, founded in 1555 by Juan de Tolosa, upon discovering a rich deposit of silver, has an attractive combination of history, culture and gastronomy.
Town with a colonial physiognomy surrounded by 10 hills and each one crowned with a cross. You can enjoy its beautiful Historic Center with intricate streets paved with blue marble, beautiful squares and gardens, as well as elegant orange quarry buildings that transport you back in time to its mining origins.
Its rich veins produced gold, silver, lead, tin and mercury and this wealth was reflected in some of its buildings and temples that adorn Sombrerete.
You can get to know this town by bicycle, ATV, by cart or on foot. It is a World Heritage Site since it is part of the Camino Real de Tierra Adentro.
