Encarnacion de Díaz

Jalisco

In the Altos del Norte, in Jalisco, you’ll find a small town with a warm semi-dry climate where volcanic origin formations, basalts and different kinds of clays abound that give it a very special touch. We’re talking about Encarnación de Díaz, a 1760-founded town that owes its name to General Porfirio Díaz, who proclaimed it in honor of the Virgin of the Incarnation.

This municipality seems almost lost on the map, that’s why the destination offers an intimate and quiet environment. Its streets are decorated by vestiges of what once were bridges. You can do many interesting activities there.

If you go to Encarnación de Díaz, we assure you that you’ll enjoy relaxing afternoons, for example, visiting the 18th century Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de Encarnación or the 19th century Iglesia de Jesús, María y José.

The Colonial and Porfirian haciendas, typical of Altos de Jalisco, extend throughout all Encarnación de Díaz, becoming another of its jewels.

The Hacienda Mesón El Sauzal is one of its great tourist attractions, since it conserves in perfect condition its old inn, chapel and an old house that was later transformed into a soap factory by its owner, Captain José Guerra Gallardo. To date, it maintains some murals that illustrate daily life during the time.

To get to Encarnación de Díaz you can do it by land from Aguascalientes, León or Guadalajara cities.
