Founded in 1546 by Spanish Conquistadores in search of the enormous lodes of silver, Zacatecas  is considered to be one of the most beautiful of all Colonial silver cities.  Its great mining wealth during the Colonial period made Zacatecas important and dynamic with Colonial architecture in its finest.  Oxford University considers the baroque Cathedral of Zacatecas to be true jewel.  Not only colonial architecture and mining but revolutionary battles and ancient pre-Hispanic archeological sites make this one of the most fascinating and charming cities in central Mexico.

First Day: Depart from the Rio Grande Valley and clear customs at Reynosa.  Ride to Saltillo on the superhighway enjoying vistas of distant mountains leading to the plateau area of Zacatecas.  Arrive in the late afternoon checking into your host hotel, the elegant downtown Hotel Emporio Continental.
