About Bufa Hill

The Cerro de la Bufa is 2,567 meters above sea level offering you one of the best views of the city and its tourist sites. His name was given by Juan de Tolosa and means in Aragonese 'pig bladder'. In 1914 he witnessed the last battle of the Revolution. You can go up to enjoy the beautiful view and take the opportunity to visit the chapel built in 1728, the Plaza de la Revolución Mexicana and the Observatory de la bufa, where you can see a real-time aerial tour of the metropolitan area of Zacatecas. The only observatory for tourist purposes in Mexico.
