History, landscapes, plantations and vineyards are grouped in Parras de la Fuente as a spark of life in the middle of the arid desert.

KNOW YOUR SECRET MURALS
Witness the rescue of nineteenth-century murals inside the Church of San Ignacio de Loyola. Observe some wall paintings that were found behind old layers that were at the same time behind the churrigueresque altar bathed in gold, when the church was restored. 

VISIT THE POND OF LIGHT
Know the reason why Parras was the first town in America that had electric lighting. Visit the Pond of Light, a large water tank where Thomas Alva Edison installed a hydroelectric turbine testing to perfect the electric bulb.

REVIVE MOVIE MOMENTS
Films like The Wild Bunch and Cabeza de Vaca, have turned the original landscapes that Parras offers as location of their films.

SEAT DOWN AND  ENJOY A GRILL
Enjoy a good cut of meat from the north of the country accompanied by a wine from the region. Close your meal with a high note with a “nora”, a typical dessert of soft sweet caramel with almonds, a delight for any palate.
