Saltillo not only stands out as the capital of the state of Coahuila, but also because it is one of the most prominent cities in northern Mexico for its streets full of culture, history and legends. It is said that the name of the city comes from the colonial era, when the Spaniards who were starting to develop this town found a small waterfall sprouting from a hill, as it was rather small, it was named Saltillo.

In that mythical place, you can now find the Ojo de Agua church that many visit because of the beauty of its colonial construction and because the spring that gave birth to this legend still runs there.

This hot-weather city used to be covered by vegetation all over the sierra, as well as by marshes and springs, so several nomadic tribes liked the biodiversity that lived there, where they could hunt wild boar, deer and turkeys. In nearby areas there are traces of human activity in the early era with cave paintings. In addition, Coahuila was the land of dinosaurs par excellence, at least in Mexico, and should be the ideal destination for archaeologists and paleontologists at heart.

Today, Torreón has a wide range of avant-garde restaurants, hotels and spas ideal for any style of travel, whether business, adventure, cultural or romantic. Also known as the “ Atenas del Norte “, its historical center is something you should not miss as its colonial architecture will leave you speechless.

Just ten blocks from there, you'll find the Alameda Zaragoza, one of its most important and beautiful parks, as it has a lake in the shape of the Mexican Republic and houses the State Public Library, which was built from pink quarry and was inspired by the Partenon.

You can't miss the typical dishes such as the “discada” (a stew made of pork and beef cooked on a disk for roasting) or the “pan de pulque” (“pulque bread”), as well as its roast beef cuts.
