About Pachuca, Hidalgo
Pachuca de Soto, founded in 1598, is the capital of Hidalgo State. Initially, 100% of the city population depended mainly off the mining industry; today however, the predominant activity in Pachuca has become trade intended. Pachuca is called “La Bella Airosa” or “The Windy Belle” given the strong wind that usually ranges speeds of 75 km/hour and above throughout most part of the year.
Some of the main attractions in Pachuca are the civil and religious structure designs such as The House of Culture (the Efren Rebolledo Cultural Forum), the Colorado House, the Cajas Reales, the Rule House, the Bancomer building, the Barreteros Market, the University, the Historical Archives, the Art School, the San Francisco Church, the Methodist Temple, Cristo Rey, the Villita and el Reloj (the Clock).
