Pachuca is a city in the central plateau in Mexico, surrounded by mountains and natural parks.
The Ruta Arqueologica Minera is a global project promoted by the local municipality that intends to connect small communities and industrial heritage sites through a touristic route and cultural activities. Although Pachuca is proud of its mining past, the sites have not been used for a long time and the people that once worked there live in communities now disconnected from the city and lacking basic services. The complex system of mines and related factories mark different stages of industrial activity, starting with the late XVIth century and the presence of Spanish conquerors, British technology from the XIXth century, all the way to the XXth century, which brought electricity and the latest interventions during the American era. Volunteers will contribute to the restoration of green areas in order to create public spaces for the communities that surround the sites, as well as creating cultural activities to involve citizenship and attract tourism.
