Visit Hidalgo

The Hidalgo of Mexico is a state located in central-eastern Mexico. Bordered by the states of Veracruz, Tlaxcala, Puebla, Morelos and Michoacan, it is known for its agricultural production and its pre-Columbian ruins of the city of Teotenango.

Hidalgo is home to many popular tourist destinations such as Real del Monte (the first mining town in Mexico) and La Corona del Sol (an impressive ruin complex). Visitors can also explore local villages like San Bartolo Tutotepec or take part in cultural festivals such as the annual Huasteca Music Festival.

An interesting historical fact about Hidalgo is that it was the birthplace of Miguel Hildago y Costilla who led an uprising against Spanish colonial rule in 1810. This event marked the beginning of Mexico's independence movement which ultimately led to Mexican freedom from Spain in 1821.
