I took the teleferico up and walked down the hill, the museum is interesting at the top - all in Spanish. Great views of the city and plenty of places to grab a drink, something to eat and do some market shopping.

Can't go wrong with this wonderful view of Zacatecas city. It is accessible by public transportation, and it offers basic services to make your visit enjoyable. I visited with friends and we had a picnic while enjoying the vistas. I highly recommend it.

Cerro de La Bufa overlooks the city of Zacatecas, and you can have lovely views of the city from here. There is a small church, a mausoleum of the great people from Zacatecas, as well as statues of some local heroes.

The church in it has authentic and old components made of gold and brought from Spain in around 15 century If I am not wrong. You have the option to walk or pay just 10 pesos to get a... More

You can get to the Cerro de la Bufa by foot (a long hike) car or the teleferico (cable car). There is a great view of the city, and the statues of Pancho Villa and other Mexican heroes are amazing.
