Burried deep in the "cerros" (hills) of the state of San Luis Potossi lies the quaint but exciting town of Real De Catorce. There are two ways to enter this beautiful little market-driven town. One is to go up the side of hill to the plateu where the city lies. The other and most common is through a one way tunnel through a huge hill, where you only the vehicle carrying a flag can enter, which is a simple but effective way to avoid accidents. The towns streets are made of stones and while walking on them it always feels as if your either going up or down. There is a beautiful old cathedral where my parents got married. There are many vendors and alot of interesting visitors (we met germans and spaniards while visiting.) The shop keepers are super friendly and you can find all sorts of interesting little trinkets. I had a necklace made out of a key from the 1800's. Although its not a hugely known place, Brad Pitt filmed the movie The Mexican there. The buildings are beautiful and rustic, the hotels homey and inexpensive. report a problem
