Silver, Oreos, and Nancy Sinatra’s Boots
Touring The Campo Chapels With Toone
Join a rare opportunity exploring living history on the north-south trade route for over 300 years, cloistered life, where the Revolution for Spain started, kitty cat pottery and “these boots are made for walking” indigenous culture.
Following a jaunt down the Silver Route and a visit to the last chapel/secure site for the Spanish to rest before entering San Miguel we’ll visited a cloistered monastery and their chapel. Feel free to bring chocolate covered Oreos as certain friars adore them and the sugar rush makes them a bit chatty for cloistered lads.
Next comes the chapels in Atotonilco where the Revolution from Spain began and the murals draw over 5,000 visitors every week.
Then, on a lighter note, we’ll bop out to Delores to visit a pottery factory with the most colorful dogs, cats, fish and birds in the state.
On our way back into town we’ll visit the ancient chapel where San Miguel started. Here you’ll enjoy the wide array of indigenous symbolism that including a boot wearing angels that appear to be homage to Nancy Sinatra but actually have a deeper meaning.
