Zempoala, Hidalgo

We invite you to enjoy a calm, relaxed and unhurried pace. Get to know the most important hydraulic work after the Spanish conquest, named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in July 2015. It was planned to bring water to the indigenous people of Otumba, Zacuala and Zempoala. Today, this aqueduct still provides water, it is 44 kilometers long and runs from the slopes of the Tecajete volcano to Otumba. Its construction, planned and directed by Fray Francisco de Tembleque between 1545 and 1562, were carried out in several phases. 44 towns participated in it, whose seal was printed with stamps carved at the end of each construction phase. Enjoy this exclusive and interesting visit full of culture, art, engineering and history. We will visit the Hacienda pulquera San Antonio Tochatlaco, a unique experience to learn about the history and processes of the pre-Hispanic drink “el Pulque”.
