Alamos offers more than meets the eye. The town is best explored on foot, sketch book in hand, the curious eye searching out the features of days gone by and the mystery behind the gates of the houses of Alamos. Pursue each cobbled street, seeking out the details that a camera can't catch. Plaza Guides can fill in the details for the curious.
Tours of colonial homes, the countryside, various silver mines, indigenous villages, coastal estuaries, as well as river float trips are available.
Enjoy the Basque tradition of strolling student troubadours, "La Estudiantina" dressed in authentic costumes.
Alamos is a harmonious blend of color, music, smiles and lush vegetation...a supportive environment to expand one's awareness by connecting with nature, art and self.
