Quarry City
Beautifully preserved architecture and a refreshing lack of mass tourism remain among the main reasons to take a trip to Zacatecas, a colonial-era city at the heart of Mexico. The city's historical center is a designated World Heritage Site, with an iconic cathedral, a distinctive aqueduct, and countless well-preserved colonial buildings, memorable for the pink quarry stone used in their construction. Many visitors choose to explore by cable car--it's an ideal opportunity to admire the city's pink landmarks from above. Make your own Zacatecas vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Mexico trip planner.
