Durango, which is known as the land of scorpions, has something very special in its streets and in its stories. From the moment you arrive, its open and sincere people will make you feel like you're at home.

TOUR THE HISTORIC CENTER
Tour the streets of the downtown area, filled with nearly 1,000 buildings that were built during the last five centuries. You will feel like you're walking through an art museum that contains every architectural style. The foyer is the Plaza de Armas

LEARN ABOUT THE CATHEDRAL
Stop by the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception Cathedral to admire its structure, which has remained beautiful and intact. Let your guide tell you about Pope John Paul II's visit several decades ago.

ENJOY THE REGION'S TRADITIONAL DISHES
Try the caldillo, a broth prepared with dried or fresh meat and hot red pepper. Without a doubt the most representative dish from Durango. Or if you prefer, try the pork leg in pulque or the pipián.  Treat yourself to a classic menudo, a spicy honeycomb tripe soup and don’t miss the Mennonite cheese, prepared by the local communities.
