Peña de Bernal is a 433 m tall monolith, one of the tallest in the world. Peña de Bernal is located in San Sebastián Bernal, a small town in the Mexican state of Querétaro.
The porphyrytic monolith was thought to have been formed 65 million years ago, during the Jurassic period. A recent chemical analysis by researchers at the National Autonomous University of Mexico has determined that it is considerably younger, likely formed about 8.7 million years ago. Many people perform a pilgrimage to the small chapel located at the highest point accessible through hiking.

  • Our tourism is always a little different. We went by our account by bus (truck) from the southern bus Terminal of Queretaro. After an hour you arrive in San Sebastian de Bernal. Small and picturesque colonial town that is one of the 6 magical villages of Queretaro. We toured the village on foot but first we headed to the rock and climbed. We walked in but most of them are carried away in a kind of TUC TUC. To go up you must register and pay 30 pesos mex. You should wear slippers and protect yourself from the sun. Very nice view and nice tour. Worth the effort.
