PRE-HISPANIC SINALOA

The current territory that comprehends the State of Sinaloa was inhabited before the Spanish conquest in 1530 by native groups with an important cultural, social, economic and religious development.

These small groups were located by the coasts and beaches, by the banks of the rivers and streams, by the valleys and some places by the mountains. Their activities would vary from hunting, fishing and harvest.

How the Virtual Tour was made

The Photography of the Regional Museum from Sinaloa was a magical experience that allowed me to know more about the history about our loved Sinaloa.

On the outside of the building I used in two virtual tours a Nodal Ninja Stick three meters high to get a semi area picture.

The rest of the photos were taken from a standard high with the help of a tripod.
