Most Recent Things to Do in Pozos

  • Tour the Mines on Horseback

    by conklinwh Written May 5, 2009

    There were over 300 mines in Pozos in 1900 and most of the ruins still exist, mostly southeast of town at Santa Brigitta or in the western hills. These are both perfect for hikes but are truly spectacular on horseback.
    Horseback tours can be arranged through the Posada de las Minas Hotel, Casa Mexicana or Casa Montana on 2-3 days notice. All of these have links on the www.mineraldepozos.com website. Also, please state whether you would like a guide to accompany you and whether you wish a box lunch. Given some of the views, I would not pass on the latter.

    A home

    Someone lives here

    Driving around, we saw the usual brick or cement homes, so it was strange to see a home behind a brick wall, with this type of roof. Normally these roofs would be good in places that receive a lot of snow.

    San Rafael Mine

    Samples of stones

    This is the entrance to a mine where there are veins of gold, silver, iron, and other minerals and crystals. You can go down into the mine to the water level at more than 650 feet below the surface. The mine has electric lights and ropes for your security. Either Jose or Robert will guide you.
    We were just driving around when we passed by here, so I don't know the exact street name.

    National Mariachi Festival

    Mariachi Festival

    There is an anual Mariachi festival taking place in Pozos during June 10th and 11th. It is a must, and if you're around the area make sure to get there!

    This festival started in May 1997 as part of the festivities honoring Senor de los Trabajos, local saint as an initiative to develop art expressions and show the local activities to nearby cities.

    Most mariachis don't charge for their participation, only their expenses and this basically because there are few mariachi festivals in Mexico.

    Here is the program for 2001:

    4o. Festival del Mariachi
    Mineral de Pozos, Guanajuato
    10 y 11 de junio del 2001

    Domingo 10 de junio
    * Mariachi Femenil "Estrellas de México" de la Ciudad de México
    * Mariachi Juvenil "Nuevo Cocula" de Cocula, Jalisco
    * Mariachi "Alazanas" de la Ciudad de México
    * Mariachi "Palmeros" de Querétaro

    Lunes 11 de junio
    * Mariachi Juvenil "San Luis Potosí" de San Luis Potosí
    * Mariachi "Mexicanísimo" de Querétaro
    * Mariachi "Gavilanes" del Mineral de Pozos
    * Mariachi "Real Santa Cecilia" del Estado de México
    * Mariachi "América" de la Ciudad de México

    A very old church

    Behind this rock wall is what is left of a church. It was exciting to see it. We were just driving up and down some streets and saw it.

    Awesome architecture

    Wish I knew what this was, but it sure was neat. It was located close to that large school or whatever it was. I was fascinated.

    Neat old building

    Another part of the ruin I thought was an old school, or something like that. Maybe a convent or ???

    Old building

    Hard to tell. This building is much larger than the picture shows. It continues way back. I wonder if it was a school or maybe a convent. Not sure.

    Ruins

    You don't have to drive very far to see ruins. These were found 5 minutes from the main street in town.
