About the Hike:

Zegache to Tilcajete  - Cultural & Countryside

In San Martin Tilcajete you will find hundreds of fantastically imagined and brightly painted wooden figures for sale in art shops and markets. The carving of alebrijes is a cottage industry here, and supports many families (and not a few towns).  Alebrijesoriginated in Mexico City in 1936, the creation of Pedro Linares, who dreamed of such weird creatures while hallucinating during a serious illness. Also, the renowned painter, Rodolfo Morales, restored and decorated a number of churches in the area, including the one in Santa Ana Zegache, which we will visit on this hike.
