20 de Noviembre Park and Our Lady of Guadalupe Sanctuary

Alameda 20 de Noviembre and Santuario de la Virgen de Guadalupe

Three blocks north of the Main Square (Plaza de Armas) is the Alameda 20 de Noviembre park, and three blocks west of there, is the Our Lady of Guadalupe Sanctuary, from the Viceroyalty era. This is a simple building with a neoclassical look, but inside it houses beautiful altarpieces and several notable Viceroyalty oil paintings, some of which are by the Mexican painter Antonio de Torres.

It also houses mementos that once belonged to Evaristo Madero (who was born in Río Grande, Coahuila and Texas, but lived and worked for a great part of his life here in Parras), as well as others belonging to Francisco I. Madero. 

This is where the Hacienda del Rosario was. As the years went by, the hacienda became fragmented, and now its houses and territories are scattered throughout the town.
