Sun Shines Everywhere 1289

Margaret and Fred Fago traveled to Mexico to experience the cultural activities during Semana Santa. The trip was sponsored through a grant from the Frank Bette Center for the Arts. One of their stops was Real de Catorce, where Margaret holds the Alameda Sun by the Church of Purisma Conception. Real de Catorce, where silver was discovered in 1773, was one of the richest mining towns from colonial Spanish days, and has been designated a “Magical Town” by the Mexican government. It is now a charming, thriving vacation destination with cobblestone streets and gracious old stone buildings.
