Butterfly Region


Magic Mining Towns


Thanks to mining, the development and modernization of our country was possible, extracting all kinds of minerals and precious materials from the mountains, one of the most prolific in the center of the country was the Dos Estrellas mine in Tlalpujahua. We will begin our tour through the magical mining town of Angangueo, a town whose mountains are the favorite home of the monarch butterfly in the winter. We will visit the miners monument, the Parker House with its museum and the San Francisco temple with its fountain of art deco style brought from France.

We continue our journey through the mountains until we reach Tlalpujahua Magical Town where we will visit the Dos Estrellas mine and we will know the greatness of the mine as well as the work of the miners. When leaving the mine we will go to Tlalpujahua´s downtown where we will visit the Church “Del Carmen” with its interior decoration in intense colors and baroque style.

Later we will visit a workshop of Christmas tree spheres, a very typical craft of the region and which are all hand painted, exported to the entire world.
