Ciudad Cuauhtémoc

Chihuahua

Opening the door to the Sierra Tarahumara, you will find the community of Ciudad Cuauhtémoc (named after the last Aztec emperor) located 104 kilometers ( 62 miles) southwest of Chihuahua City.

It is also known as “ La Tierra de las Tres Culturas” (The Land of the Three Cultures), since in Ciudad Cuauhtémoc live together the descendants of the revolutionary landowners, as well as the indigenous community of the Raramuris and the Mennonites.

Tour this city that, in spite of being one of the youngest towns in the state of Chihuahua, is highly recognized for the beauty of its orchards that generate one of the delights emblematic of these fertile lands and arid climate: the apples. Similarly, the development of livestock and dairy production has supported the economic activity of Cuauhtémoc.

Neither can you miss a trip back in time when you visit its old railway station, built during the Porfiriato, which helped the development of the area, positioning it as the third most important area in the region. All kinds of raw materials, heads of cattle and tools used in mining traveled in the old machines that ensured progress and modernity to this whole territory.

Although the state is made up of 67 municipalities, this is a very special one since it is home to the largest community of Mennonites in all of Latin America, who arrived from Canada during the 1920s (in that decade alone about six thousand arrived) fleeing from a religious persecution initiated by Martin Luther's Reformation movement.

It was here, on the border of Chihuahua, that they found the ideal lands to develop their way of life. This is why going to this community has become a must on the itinerary of those who travel around the state.
