UNESCO - Agave Landscape, Mexico



A wonderful surprise during my last year's absence, one of quite a few from dear Bryon who went to Mexico in the spring - Santiago de Tequila is a Mexican town and municipality located in the state of Jalisco about 60 km from the city of Guadalajara, best known as being the birthplace of the drink that bears its name.
As for the WHS, it is a 34,658 ha site, between the foothills of the Tequila Volcano and the deep valley of the Rio Grande River; part of an expansive landscape of blue agave, shaped by the culture of the plant used since the 16th century to produce tequila spirit. The area encloses a living, working landscape of blue agave fields and the urban settlements of Tequila, Arenal, and Amatitan with large distilleries where the agave ‘pineapple' is fermented and distilled.
And oh such great stamps, thanks so much B.! Needless to say I feel so guilty now for hardly sending anything in the last year, I hope to compensate for that some time soon...
