Zacatecas

Zacatecas, teleferico system on the Bufa mountain is an old Aerial Tram and dates from 1975, it was meant as a medium of transportation but today is more like a touristic atraction on the city.
The state name derives from the name of its capital, Zacatecas. This word is derived from Nahuatl and means -where there is abundant zacate (grass), Zacatecas is located in North-Central Mexico, The state is best known for its rich deposits of silver and other minerals, its colonial architecture and its importance during the Mexican revolution. Its main economic activities are mining, agriculture and tourism.
The city had its start as a Spanish mining camp in the mid 16th century. Native Americans had already known about the area's rich deposits of silver and other minerals. Due to the wealth that the mines provided, Zacatecas quickly became one of the most important cities in New Spain, with much of its silver enriching the Spanish crown. The area saw battles during the turbulent 19th century, but the next major event was the Battle of Zacatecas during the Mexican Revolution when Francisco Villa captured the town, an event still celebrated every anniversary. Today, the colonial part of the city is a World Heritage Site, due to the Baroque and other structures built during its mining days. Mining still remains an important industry
