Hermosillo

Sonora

Hermosillo city’s, Sonora state capital, landmark is the beautiful Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción (Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption), located next to Plaza Zaragoza where is also the Government Palace, with some murals in the inside that tell the entity’s history with an art and bright colors display.

According to historians, this central square would be one of the oldest corners in this northwestern metropolis of the country since it dates from 1780. Although it was born as Villa del Pitic, it was given the name of City of Hermosillo in 1828 for honoring insurgent general José María González de Hermosillo.

Today it’s considered among the most thriving cities in the country due to its geographical location, innovative attitude, economic diversification and education access. It’s two and a half hours away from Ciudad Obregón and an hour and a half from Guaymas.

Few steps from Plaza Zaragoza is the Museo de Culturas Populares e Indígenas de Sonora (Museum of Popular and Indigenous Cultures of Sonora), as well as Historic Center two other interesting squares—Plaza Vidal and Plaza Bicentenario, flanked by the Congreso del Estado de Sonora (Sonora’s Congress) where there are also shops offering the most exquisite Sonoran crafts, such as Seri basketry.

Few steps from the Historic Center rises another Hermosillo symbol, from where, after going up, you’ll get the city's best views—the Cerro de la Campana, named for how its rocks sound when hit.

But Villa de Seris might be Hermosillo's most picturesque point, famous among those with a sweet tooth for being the place where the best coyotas, obleas, jamoncillos and chiltepines are made.

And, as if sweetness weren’t enough incentive to get to this neighborhood around the Plaza de la Candelaria, its colonial-look streets are charming. You can complete your walking through the area with a visit to the Museo de Arte de Sonora (Sonora Art Museum).

Traveling families will find ideal Plaza Madero, especially because of the Parque Infantil de Hermosillo (Hermosillo Children’s Park). Nearby is the educational Museo Regional de Sonora (Regional Museum of Sonora). And if children love nature, another interesting option for them is the Centro Ecológico de Sonora (Sonora Ecological Center) at city southern—it has more than 500 species of plants and animals, an Eco Safari and an astronomical observatory.

Finally, as night falls, and after watching dusk from the Cerro de la Campana, you can head to Plaza Hidalgo, where several bars for lasting any evening are.
