Emblema de MéxicoSiglos XVI-XXI
Desde este mirador se tiene un excelente panorama de Tequila, ciudad de traza regular que desde el siglo XIX le ha dado su nombre a la bebida emblemática de México. Una impresión similar tuvo hacia 1840 el marino estadounidense Maxwell Wood: "Inmediatamente debajo de nosotros estaba la ciudad de Tequila, con sus casas y las bóvedas de su iglesia ubicadas entre las copas de los árboles. Los edificios de Tequila eran hermosas y sus calles regulares." En un informe redactado en 1875 se hace una poética descripción desde lo alto de la antigua villa tequilense. [...] reclinada al pie de una elevada montaña, parece un nido de pájaros colocado entre las rocas y abrigado de los vientos. Pues bien desde ese punto tiene Tequila una vista hermosísima: sus calles y plazas destacan perfectamente; a los pies del espectador bulle agitada la muchedumbre; se escucha el rumor causado por la gente que transita por las calles, como el lejano zumbido de las abejas. Por todas partes se elevan columnas de humo: son las tabernas, principal fuente de riqueza en Tequila que, cual monstruos gigantescos, arrojan al respirar enormes cantidades de vapor. La imagen panorámica de este enclave industrial único se sigue manteniendo hasta la actualidad. English:

XVI-XXI Centuries
This lookout-point offers an excellent view of the City of Tequila. The American sailor Maxwell Wood recorded what he saw around 1840:
Immediately below us was the city of Tequila, with its houses and church domes located among the three canopies. The buildings of Tequila were beautiful and its streets regular. A similar description was poetically recorded from this lookout in 1875:...Reclined on the foot of a high mountain, it looks like a bird's nest located in between rocks and harboring the winds. For from this point Tequila has a beautiful view: its streets and plazas perfectly highlighted; the agitated crowd at its feet; a distant buzz, one can hear the murmur made by the people that walk through the streets. Everywhere smoke plumes rise: they are the distilleries, the principal source of wealth in Tequila and as gigantic monsters, throw enormous quantities of vapor as the breath. The unique panorama of this industrial enclave remains much the same to this day.
