Historic Tree
On March 5, 1779, the religious missionary of the Apostolic College of San Francisco de Assisi of Pachuca, Friar Guadalupe Soriano, arrived here at this historic tree. It is also known as the “blessed tree.” The friar came to live with the Chichimecas (Serranos) who were still in the Sierra Gorda, trying to evangelize them and learning their customs. He arrived at the place called Ranas, where he celebrated the first mass under an oak tree that the native Indians knew as "the blessed tree."
