Mexico Will be Home to the World’s First Cornish Pasty Museum

15 Nov

Yes, you read that right – a cornish pasty museum will be opening up in the small town of Real del Monte which is located in central-eastern Mexico. The pasty was brought to Mexico by Cornish miners in 1824 as they helped build the local mining industry and signifies the town’s present and historic ties with Cornwall. An example of present day ties include the fact that , “Four Cornish mine pump engines are still in place, while the town clock at Pachuca still chimes to the tune of Big Ben.”
