I went there during Holy Week, la Bufa is the Zacatecas top hill. The weather is cool which means that you can walk all the way up there and you will not feel too hot. The view is amazing, you can see the entire city from there and there is a "Teleferico" or cable car that you can take and... More

I took the cablecar to la Bufa and spent about 90 minutes at the top admiring the view, visiting the small church, going around the well- thought out and high quakity Revolutionary Museum (although all explanations are Spanish) and looking at the multiple monuments dedicated to leaders of the revolution. It was pretty windy at the top, so take a... More

There's a lot going on up here on Wineskin Mountain. There's a smallish museum celebrating the 1914 battle I'm which Pancho Villa's forces defeated the government's army, opening the way to Mexico City. There are some impressive equestrian statues of the victors. There is a chapel said to have curative powers, and there's a museum containing tombs of various Zacatecan... More

Worth the trip, very nice view with a beautiful chapel. Revolutionary Statues, Pancho Villa sacked Zacatecas during the war. You can take a cab and ride down in the cable car. We took the tour recommended at the hotel, however we wasted an hour waiting for people to ride the zip line that was not listed in the tour.
