Chihuahua Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
The dog is probably more famous than the city, but for travelers Chihuahua is a good destination and a perfect starting point for a rail journey into the Sierra Tarahumara and Copper Canyon (las Barranca de Cobre). As capital of the state with the same name, Chihuahua, founded in the early eighteenth century, thrives as the center of a vast economic region based on mining, agriculture and livestock.

Tree lined boulevards, colonial mansions and thriving markets are the main attractions of the city. The Museo de la Revolucion is another must see; it's the authentic 50 room quinta where Pancho Villa lived during the Mexican Revolution.

On market days the city is even more lively than otherwise. Tall, blond and blue-eyed Mennonite farmers from the surrounding area are found in the city peddling their cheeses on the street corners in their classic cover-alls.

Chihuahua is located in the north of Mexico on the main highway from Mexico City to Ciudad Juarez
