Chihuahua

The largest state in the Mexican Republic belongs to the largest desert in the whole of North America. The capital city of the state, which bears the same name, is centered around a revolutionary past which is echoed in every corrido (popular Mexican ballad which narrates a story), where history is turned into a song, and all the museums, monuments, and buildings that tell stories of battles won, the role of faith, and the architectural influence that refuses to become outdated.

The city itself is like a living museum, brought to life through every statue erected in the Historical Center; welcoming those who choose to explore the entrails of the destination and walk resolutely under the heat of the desert sun, without taking a horse or stopping for a pause; just following imaginary lines which traced the course of history which led to our present, where the División del Norte vibrated with the cry of a people who built a nation.

Having taken almost a century to complete, the Baroque-style Catedral Metropolitana de Chihuahua is one of the main attractions in the capital. As well as sheltering the Santuario del Cristo de Mapimí, there is also a Museo de Arte Sacro (Museum of Sacred Art) located in the underground part of the cathedral, where you can browse the permanent collection of 18th century oil paintings.

The Palacio de Gobierno (Government Palace), a construction from the Porfirian era, located in the City Center, is one of the gems of this destination. Behind the large wooden doors you can behold a real Palace, adorned with murals which narrate the history of the city, from 1941 until the time of the Mexican Revolution. There are two small museums inside: one is dedicated to the nation’s hero, Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, who was shot here; the other is a gallery of weapons from past eras.

Walking around Chihuahua is synonymous with exploring a huge restaurant, with gastronomic treats which never seem to end. As soon as you finish an amazing entree, an extraordinary dessert appears. Whether or not there is meat on the menu, the people of Chihuahua have become adept at working wonders in their ovens and cooking pots. Make sure you bring a great attitude and an empty stomach, as well as a doggy bag to store your leftovers-you’ll thank us for it.

Whether you plan to relax, or enjoy the weather in Chihuahua with a sotol (Mexican drink with distilled alcohol) in one hand, and a montado con frijoles refritos (tradtional tortilla snack with refried beans on top) in the other; enjoy a discada (popular mixed-meat dish) with a group of friends, or machaca (a dried meat dish) for breakfast with your other half, you’ll be able to taste the flavors of this city-even in your memories, as these flavors and aromas are elements which once experienced are never forgotten. Come to the Estado Grande and discover your next favorite dish! You won’t be able to stop yourself from sharing all your feasts on Instagram.
