Mennonite Community

Ciudad Cuauhtémoc

Traveling is also about getting into new cultures, which is why the Mennonite settlements in Cuauhtémoc City have become one of its main attractions.

Walk through the streets of the community, little by little you will find yourself surrounded by old houses built of adobe with a mixture of sand and lime, wooden roofs with galvanized layers, preserving the traditional designs in which the stable was kept near the kitchen to protect the cattle from the cold.

Also, you will admire how modernity is making its way with more modern houses that copy American architecture. All of them keeping the tradition of being beautifully decorated by many flowers and trees that blend perfectly with the vegetable gardens and corn, bean, oat and wheat fields or the barns that shelter animals such as pigs, cows and chickens.

The best thing to do is to visit el Corredor Comercial Menonita (Mennonite Commercial Corridor), which concentrates a multitude of stores such as shopping malls, metalworking shops, restaurants and hotels along its 40 kilometers ( 25 miles) of length. Here is where el Museo y Centro Cultural Menonita (Mennonite Museum and Cultural Center) is located, which you must visit to get into its uses and customs. In addition, you can buy some handicrafts and the rich cheese that has become so popular in this community.

If you are hungry, one of the most popular restaurants is Los Arcos Pizzeria. Ask for the house specialty, the pizza that bears the restaurant's name made from locally grown Mennonite cheeses and ingredients. Although they don't sell alcoholic beverages (in fact, they don't sell them in this whole territory), that allows you to order a delicious ice cream shake made with the most fresh ingredients.

The state of Chihuahua is the fourth largest producer of milk in all of Mexico and much of it is produced by the Mennonite fields, who brought their own cows when they arrived on the railroad to Mexican lands, so it is a must to buy or at least taste their cheeses, breads and maisteja (sunflower seeds) which they are fanatical about and you will have to try them to find out why.
