Walk to the Mazatlan Observatory

Walk to the Mazatlan Observatory

Funicular MazatlánWithout a doubt, one of the most important attractions of Mazatlan are its natural beauties and historical corners and what better place to enjoy them than from the Observatory 1873.

The 1873 Observatory located on the top of ‘Cerro del Vigia’ and 75 meters above sea level, was initially built as a military observation post (hence the name of Cerro del Vigia) since its strategic location allowed the local population to protect themselves from the incursion of enemy ships such as those dedicated to piracy.

For the year 1873, this place was incorporated meteorological and seismological activities, becoming one of the most important in the time of Porfirio Diaz. The recovery of this historic site has allowed both locals and visitors the opportunity to discover part of the history of Mazatlan and its beauties from another perspective.

Living the experience of the 1873 Observatory is unique since the walk begins with the ‘Funicular’ which is an inclined elevator that takes you to the top of the hill, it should be noted that it is the first in Sinaloa and was awarded as the inclined elevator project of the year. Being at the top of the Observatory enjoy the tour of the:

  • Museum.

  • Access to Sky bar.
  • Agaviary and Desiladora where you will see more than 30 species of cacti and agaves and during the tour you will learn a little about the history, curious facts and a tasting of three types of mezcal.
