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.
