Home to ancient cultures that inhabited modern-day Mexico long before the arrival of colonialists, the northern Mexican state of San Luis Potosi celebrates its rich history. Founded on the back of a gold rush in 1592, the state, and its capital city of the same name, enjoyed prosperity, which can still be seen in the striking colonial architecture on a San Luis Potosi itinerary. Situated between three of Mexico's biggest cities, the state holds an important place as one of the country's key trading routes. Most of the state sits on the Mexican plateau, with a tropial valley around the Tampaon River in the east.
