The views are great from La Bufa and we enjoyed walking around outside, climbing up the hills, etc. They have beautiful statues outside representing on of the famous battles in Zacatecas. If you are not a Spanish speaker, the museum itself probably is not worth...More

A lot of information on the area including very important historical info. Outside the museum it's just as historical. There's an area facing the entire city from the top and that provides for a meaningful experience. The only downside is that some areas are plagued...More

The Bufa has great view during the day and night. Unfortunately the teleférico was closed both times we came. It gets chilly at night. Try climbing to the top... to the cross.

Just another place to check out craftery and mexican revolution heroes on their horses. People are nice but going to Zacatecas downtown would be equally satisfying.
