in 2005 Dancers Celebrate and the whole town gathers for the 350th anniversary of the town of El Rosario, Sinola, Mexico outside Our Lady of El Rosario church in the town center. Known as an ex Royal Mine of the Spanish crown, El Rosario was founded in 1655 when the mine of Del Tajo was discovered. The mine was very productive for almost 300 years and lent a lot of splendor to El Rosario. Our Lady of El Rosario church is truly a jewel of colonial baroque. In its interior you can admire the 24 carat gold gilded altar from the 17th century. El Rosario is located on Mexico's central pacific coast about 40 miles southeast of Mazatlan.
