San Sebastián Bernal, better known as Bernal (Spanish: [beɾˈnal] (listen); from Basque Vernal, "place of stones or boulders"), is a colonial village in the Mexican state of Querétaro. It was founded in 1642 by Spanish soldier Alonso Cabreral. Bernal is located 40 minutes by road from state capital Santiago de Querétaro and two and a half hours from Mexico City. It is located in Ezequiel Montes municipality, a few minutes from Colón and Cadereyta. It has a current population of 2909, of which 1377 are males and 1532 are females. A total of 1014 persons are counted as Economic Active Population and there are only 630 inhabited homes in town.
It is known for its enormous monolith of massive rock, the Peña de Bernal, the third highest on the planet.
This mighty monolith is one of the tallest in the world and can be seen for miles and miles. The stunning rock is a beacon, attracting rock climbers from Mexico and around the world. It offers a number of routes of varying degrees of difficulty.
For the less adventurous (us), a moderately strenuous 30-minute hike will take you as far as you can safely scale the rock without ropes. The vista from the Bernal peña provides great views of the town below and the expansive plateau on which it sits.
Bernal sits along the route known as la ruta de arte, vino y queso. Artisanal cheese (queso) is a local craft export and you can find a number of boutiques specializing in cheeses, artisanal foods, wines, and craft beers. It’s the perfect place to pick up a souvenir (or stock up for yourself).
Bernal is also known for its Pan de Queso, a sweet bready pastry made with local cheese. Pan de Queso is phenomenal for breakfast with coffee and can be found throughout the city.
