Pachuca de Soto, founded in 1598, is the capital of the state of Hidalgo. Initially 100% of the population of the city was in the mining industry, but today, the predominating activity in Pachuca is commerce. Pachuca is called “La Bella Airosa” or “The Beautiful Windy” due to the winds of up to 75 km/hour throughout most of the year.
Some of the main attractions of Pachuca are the civil and religious structures such as The House of Culture (the Efrén Rebolledo Cultural Forum), the Colorado House, the Cajas Reales, the Rule House, the Bancomer Building, the Barreteros Market, the University, the Historical Archives, the Art School, the San Francisco Church, the Methodist Temple, Cristo Rey, the Villita and el Reloj (the Clock). El Reloj was created by the same company and made with the same machinery as the Big Ben in England. It is adorned with four perfect sculptures that symbolize liberty, independence, the constitution and reform.
Culture is not lacking in this beautiful city. Cultural attractions include: the Photography Museum, the Regional Museum, the San Juan Pachuca Mine, the Rehilete Museum, the Mining Museum and the Symphony Orchestra.
Pachuca has a well-developed hospitality infrastructure that includes hotels, car rental companies, activities and an intense night life. This city is considered the birthplace of soccer in Mexico and the passion for this sport can definitely be felt here.
Hospitality is very important in Pachuca. Enjoy the pleasant, mild weather and harmonious atmosphere during your vacation.
