Arteaga, Pueblo Magico in Coahuila, is called the “Mexican Swiss” for being located between Sierra Madre Oriental snow-capped peaks and wooded landscapes. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s the country's only destination with a ski slope working all year long.

Travelers who love ecotourism have lots to do in Arteaga as well as those who vacation just in relaxing plans, finding some cabins in the mountains and quiet walks around downtown. Here you could find the Iglesia de San Isidro Labrador, which honors farmers' patron saint. The 18th century building keeps a gold watch on its facade.

The temple is the starting point to downtown streets. Most of them show off their colonial mansions turned into liquor and preserved fruits stores that are the house’s specialty. Arteaga is a Pueblo Magico famous for its red apples production, so everything related to “forbidden fruit” guarantees quality. There are also workshops to buy the star handicraft—sarapes. These textiles are characterized by having desert colors and a star shaped orifice for the head.

Another place to visit in Arteaga is Casa Carranza. Here’s where Venustiano Carranza wrote his manifestos. Some of this historical personality’s original photographs have been kept. The house is next to the City Hall.

Arteaga's winter climate is why many families visit its mountains—they use to be snowed, especially between December and January. They look for cabins with artificial ski slopes, family rooms with a grill and horseback riding through the mountains foothills.

Another way to get deep into the Sierra is by mountain biking, rappelling, hiking or ATV rides around some coal mines.

Arteaga, Coahuila, is located 20 minutes away from Saltillo, from where buses leave to the Pueblo Magico.
