A place that preserves our history

Sitting on the top of Cerro del Vigía and 75 meters above sea level, this building known as Observatorio was initially built by the people of Mazatlán as a military observation post, hence the name Cerro del Vigía. Due to its strategic location and complete dominance of the landscape, it served the city to protect it from the constant incursions of enemy ships, as well as ships dedicated to piracy. In 1873 he joined meteorological and seismological work, being one of the two most important in the country at the time of Porfirio Díaz.

They say that soon there will be more founded memories than stories told. I think that depends on who walks its steps, walks its pastures and manages to observe by the window, that which is born inside, how simply they can call it love
