A Pueblo Mágico (Magic Town) since 2007, Creel is the gateway to the millenary traditions and natural spaces of the Barrancas del Cobre.


From the El Chepe train station, the train that runs along the Chihuahua-Pacific route, you can begin to discover the world of the Sierra Tarahumara. 
Walk along the main street and see the large houses with their gabled roofs and eaves in front. Go up to the overlook to appreciate the majesty of the Sierra Tarahumara. Spend some time in the tree-lined Plaza de Armas with its central bandstand and visit the Cristo Rey church of neo-Gothic style, with its stone walls and wooden belfry. On the other side, enter the old Temple of Our Lady of Lourdes. Discover the style of 18th Century Jesuit missions as you visit the Jesuit Tarahumara Mission. 
Keep walking to reach the Casa de Artesanías, where you will find pots, handcrafts of wood, the typical wares (baskets woven with palmilla) or jewelry with seeds and feathers made by the Rarámuris.


Visit the Sacred Art Museum of San Ignacio de Loyola, with its interesting collection of religious art. Then, enter the Museum of Paleontology to see the evolution of the landscape through its fossils, dioramas and prehistoric representations.
Learn all about the Rarámuris, their traditions, their daily life and ancestry. 


Savor the typical meat stew or a traditional cheese-filled chilaca accompanied by a tesgüino or tejuino, the distinctive local beverage.
