Magical Towns

Taking the Transpeninsular Highway from the South to the North is bumping into towns that seem trapped in time; magical places where you may find remains of a glorious past. Gold mines that left behind large chimneys which still stand proud; sugar mills that left behind beautiful town houses, a museum and a theater; a French town with a particular charm, where the smell of freshly baked bread is a given. Oases, stories and secrets. A thousand legends of magical towns waiting to be discovered by you.
