The incredible Route to the "Comarca Lagunera"

Mapimí, Torreón, Durango

Start this incredible route through Durango. This modern city is also a proudly important part of the history of our country, as important events of the Mexican Revolution took place in it, especially some in which Francisco Villa took part. Additionally, it has been an outstanding mining center since the 19th century, as it has one of the most important iron deposits in the world in Cerro del Mercado. Learn more about its history in any of its fantastic museums. We recommend you to stroll through the Plaza de Armas (Arms Square) where you can admire the architectural beauty of the buildings that surround it. Also visit the Panteón Civil (Civil Pantheon), its Museo de Arte Funerario (Funerary Art Museum) is very interesting, especially the Capilla del Reposo.

Then you will visit the Parque Cañón de Fernández (Cañón de Fernández Park). This impressive place will leave you breathless, because as its name says it, it is a canyon, but despite being in the middle of the desert, there are abundant flora and fauna due to the passage of the Nazas River. This contrast will allow you to take incredible photos, in addition to being able to admire the landscapes and inhabitants of both ecosystems. Here it is possible to do kayak and climbing.

The next stop will be the city of Torreón. Walk around the Plaza de Armas (Arms Square) in the downtown area, where you will find interesting museums, such as La Moneda. The Teatro Nazas (Nazas Theater) is also worthwhile as it has a beautiful art deco lobby, and you cannot miss the challenge of the 576 steps that will take you up to the Cristo de las Noas.

This route will end in Mapimí. This wonderful place was the first Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) of Durango, with a history of more than 400 years in which its mining past stands out, and its main attraction remains: the colossal Puente Colgante de Ojuela (Ojuela Suspension Bridge). Here you can also visit the Iglesia de Santiago Apóstol (Church of Santiago Apóstol) and the Recinto Hidalgo (Hidalgo Museum), stroll through the Callejón de las Flores and visit the Museo Benito Juárez (Benito Juárez Museum).
