What Makes It Magical 

Its splendid past produced by the silver brought out of its mines is only surpassed by the stunning beauty of the eponymous canyon and its incredible natural surroundings—glens, rivers, exotic trees, delightful flowers and birds. However, its greatest treasure is surely its people. They are heirs to an exceptional, age-old culture.  

Why You Should Go 

Its Mining Vibe 

  • In 1706, rich veins of silver were struck, and La Bufa and Batopilas became world famous
  • The British, French, and US Americans poured capital into mining operations.
