When you get to Real del Monte, you should stroll down Hidalgo street and take a look at its most important points of interest. First, you’ll come across Plaza Juárez. Across from this square, is the striking Monumento al Minero. This bronze statue in front of a high pillar pays tribute to miners. Behind that is the market, with its distinctive facade and wide set of windows. It is worth popping in here to get ceramics, berries, and edible flowers, plus some traditional beef tacos de cabeza.

Around the northern corner of the Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción church is the Portal del Comercio building with its archway; this is where Maximillian and Charlotte stayed in 1865. On the ground floor there are several shops selling silver products, but without a doubt, the most popular spot is Pastes El Portal, a business run by don Ciro Peralta. He is proud to be the only one still selling potato and beef meat pies, here called pastes, made from the original recipe.
