María Sabina’s House

The house where María Sabina lived has been made into a museum.

The house where María Sabina lived is at the end of the street that runs up Cerro de la Adoración or Del Fortín. She lived here for 10 years, and during this time, performed rituals with hallucinogenic mushrooms inside. Today, it is a museum dedicated to the memory of this respected priestess and Mazatec poet. Pictures of María Sabina with some of the international figures who visited her hang on the walls. You can also see paintings inspired by her and the trips she induced with mushrooms, as well as a room that brings her kitchen to life. The area in the back has space for camping and a temascal sauna, which, instead of being made with the usual clay or adobe, is built with fragrant tree branches. Very authentic.
