Mineral de Pozos

Colonial Highlands, Mexico

Explore Mineral de Pozos, a mining centre and one of few Mexican 'Magic Towns'. Almost a ghost town, this eerie experience provides a glimpse into authentic Mexico with mysterious ruins and artefacts still to be seen from its days as a thriving community.

Visit the ruins of the Seven Brothers mine and Hacienda, as well as having a privately guided tour of the historical centre where you can still see the sixteenth-century Jesuit smelters amongst the crumbling ruins of mines, houses and tunnels. Despite its slights state of disrepair, Mineral de Pozos has seen something of a revival in recent years and a number of galleries and shops have begun to spring up, clustered around the Jardin Principal.

Enjoy lunch in the courtyard of the boutique hotel Posada de las Minas before paying a visit to a local artisan who handcrafts unique musical instruments. Enjoy a demonstration of his work before heading back to your hotel.
