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.
Start off your visit on the 4th (Sun): examine the collection at Rafael Coronel Museum (Museo Rafael Coronel), get great views at Cerro de la Bufa, and then admire all the interesting features of Mina El Eden. Keep things going the next day: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral, don't miss a visit to Plaza de Armas, then examine the collection at Parroquia de Santo Domingo, and finally see the interesting displays at Museo de Guadalupe.
