Torreon is located in the state of Coahuila and it is one of the Mexico's youngest cities. The city was officially established as a city in 1907, when a train station was built there during President Porfirio Diaz’s industrial movement.
Torreon is part of the Comarca Lagunera, made up of 15 municipalities in the states of Coahuila and Durango.
