An abundance of natural resources, including rich gold and silver deposits in the San Pedro Hills, led to the founding of San Luis de Potosi over 400 hundred years ago. During the colonial period, gold and silver were produced mainly by Franciscan missionaries.
Despite its unique eclectic atmosphere, San Luis Potosi is defined by its baroque and neo-classic architectural style. This booming commercial and industrial center is also an important cattle and agricultural zone. The city is surrounded by breathtaking natural landscapes and old ghost towns that tourists love to visit. Its streets and colonial structures are very colorful and evoke a sense of peace and tranquility that sets San Luis de Potosi apart from other major capital cities in Mexico.
In 2010, the historic center of the city was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site within El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro (the Royal Road of the Interior Land) National Historic Trail, a trade route that wound 1,600 miles between Mexico City and San Juan Pueblo in New Mexico. That operated from 1598 to 1882.
