    As other Mexican towns, Bernal has it´s Zocalo (central park) with it´s church, and other colonial buildings surrounding it. I found Bernal´s park specially charming, maybe because of the wonderful views of the impossing Bernal´s boulder or maybe because here you can feel the authentic Mexican town life.

    Bernal-a pleasant small town

    Bernal-Church & Plaza
    3 more images

    Bernal has one small central plaza, a little church, and a big rock. The Peña de Bernal, according to the tourist brochures, is taller than the Ayers Rock in Australia. (And one of my students insists that UFOs have landed there!)

    Bernal gets a lot of tourists—many to climb the rock—and there are lots of shops there too, but it still had that small town atmosphere. It is a charming town, and well worth an afternoon.

    Hour and a half up, 20 minutes down

    halfway up

    I finally climbed most of the big rock. Most, because when we got to the top of where you are supposed to stop, and we were even with people hanging off the face of the rock, and there was more rock above us, we weaseled out. But 4 people died last year going up higher--above the safety line, there's absolutely nothing to catch you if you slip. Most of the people we encountered were wearing dress shoes. ? And carrying children. ? Mindboggling. Anyway, there are signs and a well-traveled path up the rock. Don't try to go up if you aren't on the path.

    Bernal main square

    On weekends and holidays many people come to visit this place. People watching and rock watching are the main activities.

    No rush hour, no stress. Just relax yourself at the Rock and let the good times roll.

    Mask Museum

    There is a small mask museum in Bernal that is worth a look. I don't think it charged admission. (I can't remember.)

    Rock and stroll

    Stroll by the narrow streets, visit the local shops, get an ice cream or coffee cup, look for the perfect angle for a perfect photo of the Rock.
