Basaltic Prisms

The Basaltic Prisms will surprise you with their beauty and geometry. They are part of the 13 natural wonders of Mexico, so you cannot miss them.

These basaltic prisms were formed by the accelerated cooling of lava, 2.5 million years ago which covered the Alcholoya Canyon walls, now there are 4 natural waterfalls that are supplied with water from the nearby San Antonio Regla Dam.

The Basaltic Prisms can measure up to 40 m in height and 0.80 m in width and have 5, 6 and even 7 faces.

On the site there is a suspension bridge that allows you to have a closer view of these spectacular rock formations; and if you like strong emotions and prefer to have a bird's eye view, you can throw yourself in one of the 2 zip lines you can find there.

You can also take a boat ride at the San Antonio Regla dam or if you prefer, horseback riding in the surroundings.

We assure you will have an unforgettable day.


Real del Monte, a Magic Town

Real de Monte is a Magical Town located at almost 2,700 meters above sea level; is recognized as a great silver, gold and obsidian producer. During the colonial era, more than 50% of the total Silver production of the country was extracted from its mines.

In 1824 these mines were sold to a group of English investors who brought the steam beam motors that allowed to drain the water that filtered in the mines, improving with this the security and the production of the mines.

We will walk through the beautiful cobblestone streets of Real del Monte and we will be able to observe the English influence of their houses and food; specifically, the famous pastes, a flaky pastry stuffed with meat and potatoes that used to be what the miners ate during their breaks.

The English brought soccer to Mexico and the first game played officially was in 1900 by miners from Cornwall. Years later these miners founded the first club called "Pachuca Athletic Club".
