Concordia

Sinaloa

Just 45 minutes from Mazatlan you will find Concordia, the oldest colonial city in the south of Sinaloa. This is a place you cannot miss when you travel to Copala, a town with a miner heritage and rich in biodiversity.

Once in the main plaza of Concordia don’t lose the chance of admiring the majestic San Sebastián Temple that is conformed of three Baroque style structures that started to be carved in quarry at the beginning of the XVIII century.

It took 65 years for the temple to be ready. It's archangel and its vegetal branches that decorate the facade are still perfect. Even the pink color of the quarry remains without harm.

Inside, at the major altar rest the remains of Fray Bernardo of the Holy Spirit, Sonora and Sinaloa bishop who in February of 1825 started his second pilgrimage through the town, but he got sick and died in July of the same year.

At the sacristy, two headless statues will stand out from the rest of the view. It is known that this statue represents the lineage of the Spanish Nobility. These were decapitated during the fight for independence in Mexico.

The church’s atrium is surrounded by a small garden where you can take a break and enjoy the famous raspados of Concordia, made with natural fruits. You can also find fine furniture stores created by the artisans of the Mesillas community.
