Co budeš dělat

Pilgrimage to the Hill of the ancestors, the Cañada de la Virgen archaeological site experience.
Walk with me through this indigenous sanctuary founded in the VI century A.D.
While we walk through this beautiful natural landscape, learn about the 30 centuries old pre-Hispanic native civilizations, their rites, the cult to the ancestors, the archaeological excavations and the research I´m doing about the cultural meanings of the processions performed there.
This ancient pyramid was the goal for pilgrims of northern Mexico for a period of 500 years, the people that built it share the same wisdom and knowledge as the famous mayas.

-We drive from San Miguel to the Visitor Center of the site.
-We hop on the Visitor Center Vehicle that drive us 7 km to the site,
-they drop us just at the other side of the canyon that surrounds the sanctuary,
-from there we walk, as the ancient pilgrims, through the pre-Hispanic ceremonial road,
-we visit the north and the south temple and
-we enter to the main complex,
- climbing to its pyramid,
-we return to the place where the vehicle drop us.
-In total, 2 miles walking.
-Return to the Visitor Center
-We drive back to San Miguel.
Other things to note
A limited number of visitors enters the site, 55, every hour from 10 to 4 from tue to sun. We need a reservation at least two days in advance, to check the available schedules on the site.

I´m a mexican anthropologist with a master degree on sustainable tourism. Since 2003 I run the Artisans of Time cultural project. Through the travel experiences I co-create with you I fund my research projects on Ancient Mexico, San Miguel and tourism anthropology. I´m president of the Friends of the Historical Museum of San Miguel, working for the protection of San Miguel´s heritage. I´m doing actual research on the archaeological site, trying to understand the cultural meaning of the processions perfomed there, I just presented a paper on the 3rd International Congress of Ethnohistory, 2017.

Kde budeš

Cañada de la Virgen archaeological site was open in 2011. It was an indigenous pilgrimage sanctuary from the VI to the XI century. There is a limited number of visitors aloud so a reservation is needed. 3 temples on site, aligned with the sunrise and sunset on important days of their calendar. Archaeologists have found 19 burials. The architecture is embedded in the surrounding geographical features that were use to create a landscape calendar.

Alberto is great and is a wealth of knowledge. During the ride he told us a lot of information not only about the pyramid, but also about different historical sites. The pyramid is a great site to visit. There are other tour operators that you can do this tour with, but I highly recommend you do it with Alberto.

This was a spectacular tour! I cannot recommend it enough. Alberto is a knowledgeable anthropologist, but more that than this he is a passionate student of everything having to do with the pyramids and all of the archeological findings in Mexico. I was enthralled all day. His love of the area, his respect and deep regard for the history of the people who built the pyramids and those who lived there is palpable. Looking forward to coming back and doing more tours with him in the future.

Alberto is a great tour leader. He is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I learned so much about mesoamerican history and also loved seeing the open spaces outside of San Miguel.

This is a great opportunity to learn some rich history from a great story teller. Alberto lives up to his excellent reviews and has a serious passion for this subject. Treat yourself to this unique experience. Well worth the time and money. Alberto is a maestro of story telling, knowledge and authenticity. Some yummy food was available for purchase at the very end of the ruins tour.

Our experience was enhanced immensely by the extensive knowledge and passion Alberto provided. A single question from us would inspire a myriad of answers ranging from the history of the region to the current practices of the locals. Through Alberto's story telling he would transport our group with mental images of the pilgrimage and ceremonies that transpired at this magical site. If you plan to visit San Miguel de Allende this is a MUST do experience. It was beyond our expectations!
