Hidden Pre-Hispanic and Colonial historic milestones of Queretaro.
With dozens of colonial marvels in its downtown, very few know that Queretaro hides in its suburbs the largest pre-Hispanic archeological site beyond the Meso American area, including a pyramid larger than those in Tula and Chichen-Itza, the other two major sites built by the Toltec nation, in the post classical era.
The tour includes the visit to another historical site, which was built after the European conquest in the same suburb of Queretaro City, the Virgin's Sanctuary of El Pueblito.
During the tour we'll visit what is left of an old Hacienda, El Pueblito's main plaza, former city hall and its ancient church dedicated to Saint Francis of Galilee.
The tour as described, is for four persons, but it could grow to include more people. If this is your case, please, let me know it in order to create a customized tour for your group.
