Wat je gaat doen

Pilgrimage to the Hill of the ancestors, the Cañada de la Virgen archaeological site experience. Walk with me through this indigenous sanctuary founded in the VI century A.D. While we walk through this beautiful natural landscape, learn about the 30 centuries old pre-Hispanic native civilizations, their rites, the cult to the ancestors, the archaeological excavations and the research I´m doing about the cultural meanings of the processions performed there. This ancient pyramid was the goal for pilgrims of northern Mexico for a period of 500 years, the people that built it share the same wisdom and knowledge as the famous mayas. -We drive from San Miguel to the Visitor Center of the site. -We hop on the Visitor Center Vehicle that drive us 7 km to the site, -they drop us just at the other side of the canyon that surrounds the sanctuary, -from there we walk, as the ancient pilgrims, through the pre-Hispanic ceremonial road, -we visit the north and the south temple and -we enter to the main complex, - climbing to its pyramid, -we return to the place where the vehicle drop us. -In total, 2 miles walking. -Return to the Visitor Center -We drive back to San Miguel.

Through the travel experiences I co-create with you I fund my research projects on Ancient Mexico, San Miguel and tourism anthropology. I´m president of the Friends of the Historical Museum of San Miguel, working for the protection of San Miguel´s heritage. I´m doing actual research on the archaeological site, trying to understand the cultural meaning of the processions perfomed there, I just presented a paper on the 3rd International Congress of Ethnohistory, 2017.
