A UNIQUE VICE-REGAL EXPERIENCE
ZACATECAS, AGUASCALIENTES AND SAN LUIS POTOSÍ

This route will take you back to the XVI and XIX centuries when Mexico was a viceroyalty. This period started with the Spanish conquest of Mexico-Tenochtitlan and the founding of New Spain; name that the conquistadors gave to Mexico. It was during this time many of the current characteristics of the country were established and its cultural baggage was formed: language, city planning, religion, and historical/artistic monuments amongst many other things.

This route will let you discover the daily life of Mexicans during this period, the changes that this historical period generated in the country: the rise of Creoles versus native Spaniards that eventually brought an end to Mexico’s dependency on Spain and many other stories.
