Must see · Mountain · Lookout
See the city from 2,673 m (8,770 ft) above sea level on a trip up Cerro de la Bufa, a hill just east of the main urban area. The impressive, rugged spot offers uninterrupted views of the colonial city, along with a number of other attractions. Head to the museum at the top to learn about the Mexican Revolutionary War, and the battle that took place on this site in 1914. A chapel, begun in 1548 and completed two centuries later, represents another landmark atop the crest of the bluff, along with a mausoleum of the city's most esteemed citizens, an observatory, and a popular cable railway, connecting the hill to the city.

  • Highest point in the city, full view of city. Most attractions were closed due to COVID but walking the area was infusing. Few shops and a short zip line , $250 pesos per person.  more »
  • Very lovely view of Zacatecas Mexico you can take the cable car which cost 160 pesos per person round-trip or you can take an Uber which is probably more like 60 pesos for a car load. Your choice I don't really like heights so in retrospect I should have just taken the Uber
  • Great hill, it's not too much time to get to the top and it's really awesome. You can see all the city of Zacatecas in there, it's a great experience.
