Franciscan misisons


Another alternative to making the best of beautiful landscapes surrounding Villa Unión is making the route that closely follows the Franciscan missions settled in these lands along the entire Rio Grande.

It's interesting because only El Álamo has survived the ravages of time. Even so, Villa Unión is fortunate because in the area where the other missions used to be, buildings' vestiges can still be distinguished among the vegetation, as well as that of an old house that was a fort in the 18th century.

Nearby you’ll find the Hacienda de Encinas, which was very popular among the inhabitants for providing work in its cotton producer. If you want to keep on enjoying natural beauties, take a tour to Venustiano Carranza dam, a Monclova’s young people favorite due to the extraordinary views appreciated when water level is at maximum.

The last missions on Route 57 are those of Zaragoza municipality—San Francisco Sola, where only parish remains, and San Juan Bautista, built in 1700.
