"La Quemada - "Chicomostoc" Legend" Villanueva by Gatopardo
Villanueva Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 18 photos
Here remains the ancient and very important location of La Quemada, the name, taken by this twice ruins place - was it a Fort? A religious center? Market place? It's uknown and the secret is on the wall, in the encoutered stair, in the height, or the hall with a great collapsed roof.
La Quemada was also Chicomostoc, the place of the 7 caves - where Aztecs started the journey to find the promised land - Tenochtitlan?
By the location, La Quemada tells us a history that really happened and stopped in time.
This is the best place for me, when I lived in Zacatecas (my ex-home town) I enjoyed to drive there or take the bus from Zacatecas - Destination Villanueva (cost $15.00) You have to drop yourself in the main road and walk about 1 kilometer, it has a very good museum where you learn from what you see and unstertand better where you step.
Bring a sneak and water - also a jacket if it's colder. Regular clothes in summer (blue jeans and shirt) a jacket in winter (zacatecas is very dry and cold).
Honestly - You really need good health and fondition to clibm or just walk! Bring comfortable tenis shoes and clothing.
This is the place for good meditation. Very silence.
- Pros:Great for Archealogy Site Hunters!
- Cons:Close at 5 and you cannot camp there.
- In a nutshell:Not only cactus...there are more behind!
