Zacatecas is a true historic treasure of Mexico.
ENJOY A TRADITIONAL BREAKFAST
A walk through the historic center of Zacatecas should start with a breakfast at the Acropolis Cafe, housed in the Gonzáles Ortega Market. Indulge yourself with one of the regional dishes, accompanied by the pieces of art dressing the walls. When you're done, explore the market halls and marvel at the mix of architectural styles surrounding the craft shops and curiosities of the area.
VISIT THE CATHEDRAL
Cross the street, because on the other side you will find the baroque columns having details which make them look like embroidered in a pink quarry stone, adorning the facade of the cathedral. Explore the Novohispano monument and discover hidden treasures.
STROLL THROUGH THE PLAZA DE ARMAS
Leave the temple by the lateral access and go to the Plaza de Armas. Go through the square and find out the stories that the Mala Noche Palace has to tell.
MEET THE GOVERNMENT PALACE
In the background, the Government Palace dominates the northern flank of the esplanade. Stroll through its central courtyard bordered by semicircular arches, climb the steps and walk through the beautiful corridors and colonial rooms. Go out of the Plaza de Armas and try out the Hidalgo Avenue, which will take you to hundreds of treasures you still have to discover.
