Touring through the Country of the Monarch Butterfly

The Route of the Magical Mining Towns includes the quarry streets of Tlalpujahua, the flowery balconies of Angangueo and the art nouveau of the town of El Oro, in the state of Mexico; all of which comes together with the local history of mines, riches and misfortunes. The inviting weather is ideal to take a stroll among the local architectural gems such as the Parish of San Pedro and San Pablo de Tlalpujahua or to climb to the highest viewpoints of Angangueo from where you can see the bell tower of the Temple of the Immaculate Conception. The Church of San Francisco, in Zitácuaro, is also worth visiting, as it is one of the first temples ever built in the region, and it captivated Charles of England himself.
