Travel to the 19th century at the Quinta Real Zacatecas Hotel in Mexico. Nearly demolished in the 1970s this former bullfighting ring dates back to 1866. It was renovated and reopened as a luxury hotel in 1989.
Not long after that, it received an international architectural award for the restoration work. The original ring is still intact and acts as the central plaza. The seating area has been converted into hotel rooms and a restaurant. Featuring a fountain, cobblestones, and gardens the Colonial-style property exudes an historic charm. Adjacent is an ancient viaduct. With so much history, it’s no surprise that the nearby downtown area was named a UNESCO world heritage site.
