     ◈ Guadalupe is very close to the heart of Zacatecas, a small town filled with streams and streets that underscore its colonial past and appearance. Its large, pink quarry stone buildings and many chapels contribute to its elegant and interesting atmosphere.

Life is calm here, with the echo of stories from when the Ruta de Plata (Silver Route) passed through here, and when friars lived in the area. Its surroundings pay testament to this, just peek into the Silver Center or the Zacatecas Center for Research and Experiments in Popular Art.

This is also where new culinary propositions are being created, and where art from the times of the Viceroyalty can be seen in all its splendor.


Learn about art in a playful way in the Sala ExpresArte.

Convento de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe

This forms a part of Jardín Juarez. The Convent of Our Lady of Guadalupe was founded in 1707 by Fray Antonio Margil de Jesús, who belonged to the Order of Friars Minor, which was dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe. This was the most important school of Christian faith on the American continent in the 18th century.

On its red quarry stone facade, you will notice a high relief of Saint Francis of Assisi, holding a replica of the Virgin of Guadalupe. This atrium is a replica of the one in the Apostolic School of Queretaro.


Centro Platero Artesanal de Zacatecas

Located within the shell of the Ex Hacienda de Bernárdez, Zacatecas Silver Handicrafts Center is ideal if you want to get to know Zacatecas’ jewelry artisans’ work first-hand.

Here you can admire the artisans as they work the silver in its different processes such as design, modelling, wax injecting, soldering, assembly and polishing. Visit this place and buy silver that is from Zacatecas through and through!

Enjoy the activity spaces, which include a zip-line, soccer pitches, basketball pitches, and nature trails.

Visit Tacoaleche

This Guadalupe community is located 15 minutes away from the Magical Town. One of its main attractions is an old mansion named La Casa Grande, which is home to the Centro de Investigación y Experimentación en Arte Popular de Zacatecas (Research and Experimentation Center in Zacatecas Popular Art).

Here you can see the work of local artisans, who create a wide variety of pieces using cardboard, wool, beads, ceramics, quarry stone, vegetable fiber and leather.

Also make some time to visit both churches: the Santuario del Niño de las Palomitas and the Capilla del Señor de la Misericordia.

Visit the Eremitorio Sacromonte

Located a little over two hours from Guadalupe, this religious building will surprise you. This is a place for prayer and meditation located on the Cerro de la Peña Rajada.

The Sacromonte Hermitage is open to the public every first Sunday of the month, when hundreds of people make a reservation to participate in mass and visit the Gruta del Niño (the Child’s Cave).

Here, as well as visiting the hermitage, you can enjoy walks along the hill, the beautiful landscapes, and the tranquility that exists here.

La Morisma de Guadalupe

This is a theatrical reenactment with a religious and irreverent character that takes place on Campo de los Moros. It commemorates the Battle of Lepanto between the Moors and the Christians, which was fought in 1571.

Don’t miss the opportunity to witness this astonishing reenactment with your own eyes, between the 22nd and the 24th of June, during the festival in honor of Saint John the Baptist; and from the 5th to the 7th of October, in honor of the Virgin of the Rosary.
