Zacatecas, like Guanajuato, owes its beauty to the
wealth of silver extracted from its mines. The
farthest flung of the silver cities, it is a jewel in
the rough. High over the town center looms a steep
mountain that's accessible by cable car.

*La Quemada

Description: The pre-Columbian archaeological site of
La Quemada or Chicomóztoc (Náhuatl: "seven caves") is
situated about 53km/33mi south of Zacatecas on the MEX
54. This cult centre, which stretches across a large
hill, probably had its beginnings as long ago as the
Early Classic period. It is highly doubtful, however,
whether it is identical with the legendary place of
Chicomóztoc from which, according to the saga, the
seven Nahua tribes are supposed to have set off on
their migration to the south. What is certain is that
La Quemada, together with Chalchihuites and other
places in Zacatecas and Durango, lies in an area which
represented the northern boundary of Meso-American

Natural Attractions
One of the natural attractions of Colotlán is a
natural canyon known as "La Barranca" located about 1
kilometer east of El Refugio, in the south east part
of the municipality. This canyon runs for aproximately
5 kilometers and is the exit of the basin of
aproximately 100 square kilometers that was formed in
the highlands in the neighbouring state of Zacatecas
between the Sierra de Morones and the "Cerro
Chichimeco" (Chichimeco mountain, approximately 2,600
meters above sea level). The canyon is also the origin
of the "Chichoca" River, that runs east-west and that
joins the Colotlán River before joining the Bolaños
River, one of the most important afluents, running
north-south, of the Lerma-Santiago (Lerma River)

Momax (mo-MAKS), town (1990 pop. 1,621), Zacatecas, N
central Mexico, 12 mi/19 km NNW of Tlaltenango de
Sanchez Roman, on Tlalt enengo R. Grain, chickpeas,
tobacco, alfalfa; livestock.

Map includes:



Much easier to interpret than La Quemada is the
undiscovered colonial gem of Jerez, about 50
kilometers away by road. Incredibly, most guidebooks
give it no more than a passing mention, if it is even
included at all!


Fresnillo is situated 53 km to the north of the City
of Zacatecas via federal highway 15 in the State of
Zacatecas, Mexico. Fresnillo is considered the second
most important City of the State of Zacatecas, among
the interesting places you can visit are beautiful
constructions such as:

The Gonzalez Echeverria Theater

The Municipal Palace

The Church of El Transito, built in the XVIII century

The Sanctuary of Plateros, which is one of the most
important religious sanctuaries of the Country, and
where the Santo Niño de Atocha is venerated

I read in your message that you are taking a trip to Jalisco, Zacatecas and
Aguascalientes. I would be very greatful if you could email me a copy of
the suggested route submitted to Nuestros Ranchos in July or August of last
year. I plan to take a similar trip in March or April, so any information
would be greatly appreciated. I have been to Aguascalientes, Rincon de
Romos, San Jose de Gracia, Teocaltiche, Nochistlan, Mexticacan and other
pueblos but would like more information and recommendations on hotels, modes
of transportation, travel tips, etc. for the area. I am a fairly new member
in the group. Maybe next year I could participate in a group tour with
other genealogists.
