Las minas de Real de 14 fueron abandonadas hace mucho tiempo porque se acabo la plata que habia debajo de estos paisajes que ahora se ven casi como un puebo "fantasma".

Hello All!

I had the privelege to go there to Real de 14 you see is tied very much to my roots.

All my family my mother from San Luis,from Matehuala my father,grandfathers and so father was a muscisian used to travel a lot all over the state so He used to tell us lots of stories. I still have a Brother and His family living in Charcas so is how i went to visit Real took a bus from Matehuala there is only 2 one early at 8 am and other at 10 am thats it then up mountains or go under a tunel i decided and walked trough the tunnel under a huge mountain.

the Cathedral of San Francisco de Asis is beautiful i went on Oct.4/94 when they celebrate Him and was wonderful thousands of people and dances from all over Mexico.

I recomend to visit the place is really a dream truly a paradise for those who like to buy stone jewelry and silver not to talk about the food probably just for those tamales i am going back any chance i have.

thank you for the memories.

love to all

I love them !!

I  can't wait to go back is so much life in there ,close to Matehuala still lives a tribe of "Nativitos" Indians who speak another language they still use the peyote when we visited them they offered me a beautiful Man God of clay very old i keep that in the border of Mexico with the rest of my family is like a relic to me.

Did you ate any TUNAS??

San Luis is the state of the tunas but watch out don't eat too many!!

At last we emerged from the dark hole. In the morning light, Real de Catorce clung to the rock-rimmed precipices like an apparition from a forgotten past. It's so incredibly remote: nothing but horizons of bare rock twisted into a vast maze of mesas, craters, canyons and peaks, shattered like the dreams of wealth that once lured miners.

Fantastic pictures! One of my pastimes is to visit ruins, preferrably untouched if possible.

Peace, love, and beauty
