Bernal Pueblo Mágico
In 1642, familias españolas llegaron y despojaron a los chichimecas para fundar Bernal, nombre árabe que significa "peñasco". San Sebastián Bernal pertenece al municipio de Ezequiel Montes desde 1941. Por ser un destino místico y enigmático, y por su herencia histórica y cultural, fue nombrado Pueblo Mágico en el 2006 por la Secretaría de Turismo Federal. Bernal es una de las puertas de entrada a la Sierra Gorda queretana, por lo que conjuga historia, cultura y naturaleza. Sus atractivos, además de la Peña de Bernal - el tercer monolito más grande del mundo - , son las coloridas construcciones de los siglos XVIII y XIX, la variada gastronomía - especialmente las gorditas de maíz y los dulces típicos -, y los artículos de lana tejidos en telares con más de 100 años de antigüedad. English:Bernal Magic TownOn 1642, Spanish families arrived and deprived the indigenous chichimecas from their lands to establish Bernal, Arabian name that means "rock". Since 1941, San Sebastián Bernal belongs to the municipality of Ezequiel Montes. It is a mystical and enigmatic destination, with a historic and cultural legacy; therefore it was named Magic Town on 2006 by México's Ministry of Tourism. Bernal is one of the entrances
to the Sierra Gorda mountain range; it joins and exhibits history, culture and nature. Its attractions, besides the monolith - the third largest rock in the world - , are the colorful constructions from the 18th and 19th Centuries, the gastronomy, and the textiles made with antique looms.
