It is a small town in San Luis Potosí which during colonial times po- sitioned itself as one of the mining capitals, being at one point in par with Guanajuato. Its alleyways, history, traditional cuisine, and architecture make of this town a cultural and culinary paradise. Its land- scapes have been the background of multiple American and European films, which makes a visit to this place appear as if one stopped time, and is living a dream.
