Our fast talking young guide then took us to the Hill of the Bells named such since when the rocks are hit together, they sound like bells. Historically, Maximilian and two of his generals were brought to this hill and were executed by a firing squad.
Behind the Hill of the Bells stands a gigantic statue of Benito Juarez who is very famous here and eventually served as the president of Mexico for five terms. He refused to change Maximilian's sentence "...in view of the Mexicans who had been killed fighting against Maximilian's forces and because he believed it was necessary to send a message that Mexico would not tolerate any government imposed by foreign powers."

Hno. and Hna. Torres treated us to lunch and then took us back to the bus station for the next stage of our journey to Guanajuato.
