Admire the magnificent architecture of Pinos, Zacatecas (VIDEO)

97

Like all mining towns, the irregular natural topography led to the forging of a conglomerate but a charming set of houses that, over time, gave shape and importance to the real estate, giving rise to stupendous religious buildings such as the parish church of San Matías, the temple of Tlaxcalita, that of San Francisco and the one from Santa Veracruz. As well as the convent of San Francisco and other important buildings, the charming squares and its museums of Sacred and Regional Art. Along with these monuments, Pinos has unique traditions, such as its regional fair of San Matías and the Fiesta de Los Faroles, which is celebrated on December 8.

Likewise, its solid roots emerge in its artisanal, musical, and gastronomic folklore, making magnificent textiles, popular colloquiums, Matlachines and Pluma dances, and a moderate distillation of exquisite mezcal.
