Spring Equinox Festival

Make your getaway and receive the energy that emanates from the colossal monolith

Equinoccio de primavera

Peña de Bernal is a 1,150-foot high monolith. It looks like a giant placed it there as a watchtower and marks the gateway to Querétaro’s Sierra Gorda. Hundreds of people climb the huge rock at the spring equinox, under the belief that the sun has a special effect on the monolith. They also hold a spring parade, there are concerts by local bands, cultural exhibitions, a new fire ceremony, the re-enactment of pre-Hispanic rites, and a human chain for peace.

When: March 19 through 21
