O que você fará

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.

I´m a mexican anthropologist with a master degree on sustainable tourism. Since 2003 I run the Artisans of Time cultural project. 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.

Cañada de la Virgen archaeological site was open in 2011. It was an indigenous pilgrimage sanctuary from the VI to the XI century. There is a limited number of visitors aloud so a reservation is needed. 3 temples on site, aligned with the sunrise and sunset on important days of their calendar. Archaeologists have found 19 burials. The architecture is embedded in the surrounding geographical features that were use to create a landscape calendar.

Alberto gave our private group an excellent tour. His research on Cañada de la Virgen is very exciting and interesting which makes his guided tour different from other tours to this site. I have come to Cañada de la Virgen with other guides and Alberto shares important insights that I had not learned before. You will receive a unique perspective on the significance of this site. Alberto is a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic storyteller with a great passion for the ancestral knowledge that is encoded in Mexico's ceremonial sites. We highly recommend his guided tour.

This is not to be missed. Alberto has unique expertise and insight into the history of the site and culture and has enormous knowledge to offer about the location, history, and culture of ancient and modern SMA. His energy is palpable and made the experience quite memorable for all of us.

I booked this trip but my wife wasn’t looking as forward to taking the trip to La Canada de La Virgen as I was. However, Alberto exceeded all of our expectations and this wound up being one of all of our favorite things we did in San Miguel de Allende! Alberto’s knowledge and story telling were phenomenal! We were engrossed with the stories of those buried in the pyramid for sure but the cactus and plant stories were amazing, too! We left in search of cactus marmalade and beans made with Pericon! Highly recommend Alberto, whose extensive knowledge and easy and contagious laugh made this such a fun experience!

Alberto was a kind and considerate host. He was brimming with a deep passion and knowledge of the site. He generously educated us as well as entertained our questions with the history, the anthropologic and archeological significance of the Canada de Virgen and San Miguel de Allende. It was even more than we expected. What a great day!
