Zacatecas is one of north-central MexicoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most interesting cities. Capital of the eponymous state, its name comes from zacate, a nahuatl word referring to the surrounding grasslands that today provide excellent pasture. Located in a narrow canyon at 2,700 meters (8,900 feet) above sea level, Zacatecas gets mighty chilly on winter evenings. This lively city has plenty of great museums and lovely baroque churches made of locally quarried pink sandstone.
