In this zone the youngest volcano in America, the Paricutín, was born, in 1943. On this date an unexpected incident took place: two villages, El Paricutín and San Juan Parangaricutiro, were buried. The first one disappeared totally, of the second one only remain the ruins of the San Juan Temple. At present it is one of the state’s main tourist attractions. You can get there on foot or on horseback.
