The northern central Mexican state of Zacatecas now has a new “Pueblo Mágico” (“Magic Town”), Guadalupe.
The distinction was announced during the Fifth National Pueblos Mágicos Fair in Morelia, Michoacán earlier this month, by Mexican Tourism Secretary Enrique de la Madrid Cordero, along Zacatecas Governor Alejandro Tello and Zacatecas Tourism Secretary Eduardo Yarto.
The town of Guadalupe, the third-largest in the state, lies just east of the capital.
With a population of just 22,500, it is renowned for its colonial-style museum and for the Catholic Sanctuary of Santo Niño de las Palomitas
Zacatecas also has five other Pueblos Mágicos: Jerez, Pinos, Nochistlán, Sombrerete and Teúl.
