What Makes It Magical 

The area is filled with waterfalls, natural pools, and tree-lined streams. There’s also numerous church towers, which first rang out the call to prayer in this corner of Durango.

Its Colonial Churches 

  • Templo de San Francisco, a remarkable piece of 16th-century religious architecture. It is the oldest Catholic church in northwest Mexico
  • Templo de Jesús Nazareno, whose door adorned with little angels immediately brings to mind sacred art from Michoacán. 
  • Three more churches: Iglesia de San Pedro Apóstol from 1790Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, and Capilla de la Purísima Concepción

At the Very Least 

  • Ex Hacienda de Juana Guerra Ranch
