[dropcap]B[/dropcap]acked by 452 years of history, keeping locked mysteries, legends, great characters, and the enchantment of the Mexican province, Durango is a must for every traveler.
The Historic Center of superb architectural richness of the north of the country, pedestrian drives, museums, theme parks, Sierra, sites that form a part of the Camino Real de Tierra Adentro and every nook of this magical municipality, will leave you an unforgettable experience.
The uniqueness of this land is that every place evokes a different emotion, from feeling like you’re in a Western movie in Paseo del Viejo Oeste, to climbing up the beautiful Duranguense sky aboard of a cable railway, climbing down the entrails of the Historic Center to walk down the Paseo Túnel de Minería or simply taking a picture along national and international artists who have shot in Durango, immortalized in bronze along the Paseo de las Estrellas.
The city of Durango has an offering of museums with diverse themes and a family enviournment with interactive spaces for children, as well as collections that tell the origin and development of the state, the work of Duranguense artists through handicrafts, plastic arts, General Francisco Villa’s history, the mining work, the enigmatic space in the Panteón de Oriente, which shows a spectacular quarry work, spaces dedicated to Archeology, and a gallery of religous art.
Those who dare will find in the eco-touristic developments, deep in the Sierra Madre Occidental, activities that vary from hiking trails, rappels, zip lines, mountain biking, climbing, fishing and camping, and the responsible hunting of animal species like wild turkey, deer, and small birds.
Adventurers, romantics, people who enjoy culture and art, or just those who want a break from the daily routine, have in this beautiful city and its vicinities the guarantee of having a singular staying.
