Chihuahua

All nature resumed in one state

The geography of Chihuahua is among the most complex in all Mexico, and thanks to its size the landscape changes radically from an extensive mountain range to plains and deserts. These conditions are what lead one of Mexico’s greatest natural wonders to be found in the Sierra Tarahumara: Copper Canyon, home to another spectacle unrivalled in the state, the Basaseáchic Falls.

Another of the attractions of the state is, without a doubt, its archeological variety, which relates the past of the Mogollón and Anasazi cultures, whose few settlements are scattered over the north of the country, in locations hidden in the depths of the desert and the remotest mountain walls. Examples include the archeological zone of Paquimé (declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998), Cuarenta Casas, Madera and Cueva Grande, as well as the Cultures of the North Museum.

With a tradition of mining and forestry, this state condenses the identity of the north of Mexico, and is home to a diverse range of peoples, including the Tarahumaras or Rarámuris, Tepehuanes, Conchos, Guarijíos and Tobosos, ethnic groups that share the land with colonies of Mennonites who give variety to today’s northern culture in Chihuahua, represented by the traditions of villages like Creel.
