AAA Editor Notes
Cubilete Mountain (Cerro del Cubilete) is about 16 km (10 mi.) w. of Guanajuato off Mex. 110, on the way to Silao. It is said to be the geographical center of Mexico and draws many pilgrims. A gravel road climbs to the 9,440-foot summit, which is surmounted by a 65-foot-tall bronze statue of Christ the King (Cristo Rey). From here are superb views of the Bajío region, a fertile green plain dotted with lakes and isolated mountain peaks. City buses travel to the summit; the trip takes about 90 minutes.
