Zas! Zas! Zas! Zacatecas, Mexico

Zacatecas is the capital city of Zacatecas and a must see for anyone visiting Mexico. Once the largest silver mining producing city in the world, it produced one-third of all Mexico's silver during the peak of their mining era. Zacatecas is most famously known for its historical "Cerro de La Bufa" in the 'centro histórico' of the city, where there is a monument to Pancho Villa and an incredible view of the city. For Baroque-style architecture, The Catedral de Zacatecas is a magnificent piece of work, reminiscent of the European influences of the city.
