San Luis Potosi The City Of Museum

Posted on 01 February 2019 by admin (0)

Being the central city in Mexico, San Luis Potosi becomes one of the places to be visited. It used to be the major gold as well as a silver mining hub on the Camino Real de Tierra. When I visited this city, I was impressed by the Colonial buildings like the one baroque-era Templo de San Francisco. Just near to this place is Templo Del Carmen that has ornately carved façade. This city has a lot of museums and is also a gateway to Real de Catorce to the north, which is now a pilgrimage site.

There are many places in San Luis Potosi that are a must see:

 

  • Nacional De La Máscara Museum

 

This place is a must visit if you happen to travel to this city, it is dedicated to the masked dance of Mexico. It is present on the Plaza del Carmen.

 

  • San Luis Potosí Cathedral

 

If you are in a mood to visit some religious place, then this one is a beautiful cathedral. Also known as St. Louis the King Cathedral, this one is a Catholic cathedral functioning as the seat of San Luis Potosí’s Archdiocese of Mexico.

 

  • Museo Laberinto De Las Ciencias Y Las Artes

 

Another museum is in San Luis which is a great attraction. If you are an art lover, then this place is made for you. You can enjoy exhibits related to science, technology as well as art. This is basically a contemporary museum offering unique spaces along with interactive exhibits. I personally like this museum a lot.

Apart from these, there are a lot of other museums in this city. Museo Regional Potosino, Museo Federico Silva, Museo Del Virreinato to name a few. This city also offers Plazas and parks among others. I, being a museum lover have always been a regular visitor to this place.
