WHAT ABOUT A FIELD TRIP TO CAÑADA DE LA VIRGEN?

Come with ROMOTUR and discover the beauty of Cañada de la Virgen, one of the most incredible pre-Columbian sites in the state of Guanajuato.img_20160417_230426

Just 33 kilometers southwest from San Miguel, we’ll be witnessing the pre-hispanic splendor of the Rio Laja´s basin.

 

Located in the northern border of Mesoamerica, the site named Cañada de la Virgin was established around the fifth century A.C. by probably Oto-Pame groups.

It is believed it was an important astronomical and ceremonial center due to the presence of the “sunk patio” that filled with water was used as an astronomical observatory and discovery of the mortuary bundle named “El Jerarca”. Primarily investigated by Don Miguel Malo, it suffered a dynamite explosion in the 40´s which caused irreversible damages to the main structure. Cañada de la Virgen has since been part of the archaeological heritage of San Miguel.

In the 1990´s, the main pyramid was excavated by the archaeologists Luis Felipe Nieto and Don Paterson. They both ran the first scientific excavation on the site and made a complete map pointing about 90 archaeological sites in the rio laja basin.

 In 2002, archaeologist Gabriela Zepeda led a multi-disciplinary team with anthropologists, sociologists, architects, restorers, historians and archeo-astrononers. They all worked from 2002 to 2011 and obtained enormous advances in the investigation.img_20160324_115523984

Due to the archeo-astronomical program led by Rossana Quiroz, we can talk about calendar importance of the site and the role played by the sun, moon and venus as markers of the agricultural and religious events.

THE TOUR  TO THE MONARCH BUTTERFLIES SANCTUARY.

As every year join us to have this wonderfull experience visiting the monarch butterflies sanctuary  ” el Rosario”  where every year hundreds of millions of  butterflies undertake a great journey of up to 2000 miles in their annual migration from Canada and the United States to their wintering grounds in Mexico. Once in Mexico the monarchs congregate in the oyamel fir trees of Michoacan and Mexico states. Nature researchers consider this phenomenon as the most impressive in America.

After arriving at their destination, the monarchs cluster in large masses to conserve heat. Their flight muscles do not function well unless the temperature is above 55 degrees. They rest quietly on the trees, resembling dead leaves, until sunlight warms them enough to fly. On warm days, the butterflies will leave the trees entirely, seeking out nectar sources with which to replenish their energy reserves, but always returning well before evening to once again cluster in the trees.

The overwintering Monarchs do not mate until the increasing temperatures and daylight hours in February trigger the development of their sexual organs. They can then be seen performing spiral mating flights, after which the coupled pair will rest overnight. The male passes a nutrient rich sperm packet to the female during mating. This extra energy will allow the female to travel far in search of milkweed on which to lay her eggs. By March, most of the butterflies have departed on the spring migration.Undoubtelly “One of the one hundred things you should do in your life”

Come to this full day trip and you’ll be bewitched with the magic of the monarch butterflies, tour leaves at 06:00 Hrs. I`ll pick you up in your place, entrance fee is include.
