Viesca, “Pueblo Mágico” (Magic Town) is a small village of Coahuila rich in history, culture and tourism. It is an ideal place to escape away from the city and have some rest.

LIVE THE HISTORY OF THIS VILLAGE


Explore the history of the village by visiting the Municipal Museum, which exhibits arrow tips from old settlers, fossils and Viesca’s foundation document. The museum tells the history of Viesca. It covers the first inhabitants, the Tlaxcalteca indians, the conquering of the area by the Spaniards and the creation of Viesca’s flag.

WALK THROUGH DOWNTOWN


Admire the Bicentennial Clock, located in the Plaza de Armas, which serves to commemorate 200 years of Mexican Independence. The clock can be found in front of the main government building, one of the first buildings of its type in the village, which also provides an excellent example of a typical Mexican bell tower and balcony. During your visit, make sure to also see the Parish of Santiago Apostol, the largest building in the village, and the Museum of Sacred Art, which features virgins, holy ointments, ancient cassocks and sculptures. 

HAVE A TASTY MEAL


Viesca offers delicious dishes all day long. For breakfast, dip some mamones (a pink sweet whole-grain bread baked in a wood-fired oven) in a latte. For lunch, enjoy roasted pork accompanied by seven types of soups. The meal is made in an adobe furnace using mesquite wood, which gives it a unique flavor. To top it off, try something sweet and bite into traditional cajetas, also known as dulce de leche, sweet potatoes, caramel-covered fruit and biznagas (Mexican traditional candy). To wash it all down, enjoy the smoky flavors of sotol, a regional beverage made from yellow agave.

GO SHOPPING 
Buy Mexican textiles such as sarapes and traditional cloth, Day of the Dead wreaths, fine hand-woven embroidery, and various goods made from onyx.

Update on Earthquake in Central Mexico September 26th, 2017

The Mexico Tourism Board informs that tourist attractions remain open and operating in Mexico, despite damages reported in Puebla, Morelos, and Mexico City.

Museums in Mexico City have started opening normally since yesterday. Out of the 310 tourist hotels in Mexico City, all but 6 are open for business. Additionally, we are thankful to report that no other international tourism destinations in Mexico have been affected and are operating normally. Given these facts, there is no reason for visitors to cancel travel plans to Mexico.

In Puebla, all tourist attractions, including El Teleférico and La Estrella de Puebla, remain open and operating normally. The highway into Puebla as well as the airport also remain open, offering regular access to the many popular sites in the state and the surrounding areas.

Recent reports from Morelos indicated 85% of hotels and spas are operating normally, and highlighted the level of coordination and communication between Government response and recovery efforts and the INAH.

The Mexico Tourism Board, and the entire tourism industry, remains focused on ensuring visitors in the impacted areas receive any assistance necessary while continuing with their existing travel plans. Mexico’s Government at all levels continues to carry out response plans and support the individuals impacted.

Updates on the situation will be shared as new information becomes available.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

POSTURA OFICIAL REFERENTE A LOS RECIENTES SISMOS EN MÉXICO.

Septiembre 26, 2017

El Consejo de Promoción Turística de México informa que todas las atracciones turísticas permanecen abiertas y en operación a pesar de los daños reportados en Puebla, Morelos y la Ciudad de México.

Los museos en la Ciudad de México reabrieron sus puertas el pasado 25 de septiembre. De los 310 hoteles con los que cuenta la Ciudad, únicamente 6 permanecen cerrados y en observación por cualquier daño que pueda presentarse. Adicionalmente, les compartimos que afortunadamente, ningún otro destino en México ha sido afectado y todos siguen operando normalmente. Por esta razón, no hay motivo alguno para que los visitantes cancelen sus planes de viaje a México.

En Puebla, todas las atracciones turísticas, incluyendo El Teleférico y la Estrella de Puebla permanecen abiertos y en operación. La autopista a Puebla y el aeropuerto siguen abiertos ofreciendo conectividad y acceso a todos los sitios populares del estado y áreas cercanas.

Los reportes recientes del estado de Morelos indican que el 85% de sus hoteles y spas están prestando servicios reiterando que el nivel de coordinación y comunicación entre el gobierno y el INAH se mantienen sumando esfuerzos para la recuperación del estado.

Mientras que en Oaxaca y Chiapas también hubo impacto después del sismo ocurrido este mes, el día de hoy destinos turísticos como la ciudad de Oaxaca, Chiapas, Huatulco y Puerto Escondido siguen operando normalmente.

El Consejo de Promoción Turística de México y toda la industria turística del país, permanecen enfocados en garantizar que los visitantes de las zonas afectadas reciban toda la asistencia necesaria y continúen con sus planes de viaje existentes. El Gobierno de México en todos los niveles y las instancias gubernamentales correspondientes continúan llevando a cabo planes de respuesta y apoyando a las personas afectadas.

Las actualizaciones y el seguimiento sobre la situación se compartirán a medida que se disponga de nueva información.

Gracias por su ayuda y apoyo continuo.
