Nota Histórica
El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, también llamado Camino de la Plata, iniciaba su recorrido en la capital novohispano y llegaba hasta Texas y Nuevo Mexico en los Estados Unidos. Utilizado entre los siglos XVI y XIX, servía para transportar la plata extraída de las minas de Zacatecas, Guanajuato y San Luis Potosí, así como el mercurio importado de Europa.

A su paso por la ciudad de Santiago de Querétaro, pasaba frente al convento grande de San Francisco, lugar en que se bifurcaba, siguiendo hacia el norte a la ciudad de Zacatecas y, hacia el poniente, a la ciudad de Celaya.

Aunque su origen y utilización están vinculados a la minería, el Camino Real de Tierra Adentro propició también el establecimiento de vínculos socioculturales, religiosos, políticos y militares entre la sociedad hispánica y la amerindia, por lo que la trigésima cuarta Reunión de Comité de Patrimonio Cultural celebrada en Brasilia, Brasil, el 1 de agosto de 2010, aprobó su inscripción en la lista de Patrimonio Mundial de la Organización de las

Historical Note
The Royal Inland Road, also known as the Silver Road, began its journey in the capital of Wew Spain in Mexico City and ended in Texas and New Mexico in what is now the United States. Used between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, it served for transporting silver extracted from the mines of Zacatecas, Guanajuato and San Luis Potosi south to Mexico City, and for taking mercury imported from Europe north to the mines.
As the road passed through the city of Santiago de Querétaro, it made its way in front of the largest convent, San Francisco, where it forked, one part continuing north to the city of Zacatecas and the other to the west, to the city of Celaya.

Although its origin and use are linked to mining, the Camino Real de Tierra Adentro also led to the establishment of socio-cultural, religious, political and military links between Hispanic and Amerindian society, and the 34th Meeting of the Committee of Cultural Heritage, held in Brasilia, Brazil, on August 1, 2010, approved its inclusion on UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites for Education, Science and Culture.
