“Quiet and Sleepy Goodness”
Review of Main Square

Main Square
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Real De Catorce is not the place for bustling tourism, and in fact that is what makes it a great place to visit. The little square is quiet and serene, not particularly beautiful or memorable, but still a great place to watch the few citizens stroll by. There are one or two local artisans who sell wares, but don't expect much, as the street vendors occupy the other end of town near the tunnel. The square is a quiet and peaceful place to relax for a few minutes at the end of a day. And that's just fine by me :)

Found a beautiful, hand-made pendant for my better half. The artist even added to the necklace length to my satisfaction. He was very entertaining and gave a great story of the trade. There is an interesting cultural center right in the square where you can get 'the history of Real de Catorce in languages other than Spanish, for those who need it

You literally can't. The town is tiny and this is very central to everything. Real is a bit hard to reach, but it is a fantastic little ghost town with a great atmosphere.
