Plaza del Reloj and Plaza del Beso (Clock Square and Kiss Square)

Parras de la Fuente

It’s essential to visit the Pueblo Mágico de Parras de la Fuente downtown, where it’s its main church— Parroquia de Santa María de las Parras.

Upon reaching this site, one of the first monuments that will catch your attention is a 1913 majestic white clock. It was built to honor famous Mexican revolutionary, Parras de la Fuente born, Francisco I. Madero and also his arms partner José María Pino Suárez. The first stone was put the day the news of his death arrived. At the top of the clock, you can see a bust of General Ignacio Zaragoza, who was also a Coahuila native.

Locals use to visit this poplar grove as a couple, family, or groups of friends to enjoy the quiet afternoons, while enjoying some coffee, campechana, wine, or ice cream. It’s the perfect meeting place because here is the tourist information module and it’s where most of the tours offered throughout the town depart from, either by tram, Turibus or to the vineyards and museums.

Similarly, you can find electric bicycles to improve your mobility in Parras de la Fuente or hire one of the traditional horse-drawn carts—perfect scenario for a romantic afternoon. Behind the church, there’s another extremely popular square—the Plaza del Beso. This is the favorite place for lovers, since it’s said that those who kiss on one of the benches surrounded by walnut trees, usually have the good luck of a lasting love.
