IMPRESSIVE NATURAL BEAUTY

This is a small and picturesque town located in the heart of Querétaro. 

It is characterized by its red-tiled roofs, surrounded by a wooded landscape in the middle of mountains. It has a small square, narrow streets, and beautiful balconies.

Another distinctive feature of Pinal de Amoles is the dense fog that regularly covers the town, especially in the winter months, as well as its rich gastronomy, its huapango music, and its varied crafts.

Its landscapes are the perfect setting to enjoy a wide variety of adventures.

As for the local cuisine, a "Route of Flavor" has been created in the Sierra Gorda. It is called this because while exploring the beautiful corners of the sierra, you can stop at the various roadside eateries and enjoy typical dishes such as “gorditas de chicharrón prensado”, “quesadillas de champiñones”, “pan de pulque”, and “tamales de queso”, among others.

If you have a sweet tooth, you will also find delights like pachones, which are sweet corn tostadas made on a metate.

It is located 153 km from the city of Querétaro.
