Heart of the Sierra Gorda
The road to the Sierra Gorda is wonderful. On the way you can appreciate different ecological floors and enjoy spectacular views.
In Jalpan and its surroundings there are several tourist attractions: a dam where you can practice sport fishing, a recreational park, rivers, caves, an ecotourism site with cabins that have all the facilities, an archaeological area and a great gastronomic offer.
The Historical Museum of the Sierra Gorda is located in one of the oldest buildings in Jalpan: a fort built in 1576 that also served as a prison for more than 50 years. Since 1991, this building houses and exhibits a representative sample of the artistic, cultural and historical heritage of Querétaro’s Sierra Gorda. In addition to dedicating a room to the interpretation of the Biosphere Reserve, in the museum holds several prehispanic pieces that were located in the surroundings of this population, as well as documents, photographs and maps of the region.
