Sightseeing in Chihuahua - what to see. Complete travel guide

One of the major industrial centers of Mexico, Chihuahua is situated on the plateau called the North Mesa. The height of the city is 1400m above the sea level. Here are well-developed mechanical engineering, wood processing, chemical, textile, pulp, and paper industries. The suburbs of the city are the locations of ore base and precious metals mining.
The town has a railway line, the journey on which will be a real pleasure. The highway is built through the picturesque countryside. Barranca del Cobre is particularly interesting to visitors. The name of this place is translated as "Copper Canyon". This is a whole series of majestic canyons that create a truly unforgettable sight. Each of the 20 canyons is approximately four times bigger than the famous Grand Canyon. During the ride the train passes 39 bridges and 86 tunnels in total.
Chihuahua can become a starting point for exploring the nature of Chihuahuan Desert, which is especially beautiful in the beginning of summer, when many flowers bloom here.

The most important commercial and industrial center of the region offers to its guests an excellent opportunity to study the country's history and the way of life of the local residents. This city has played an important role in revolutionary events in the history of the country. Museum of Revolution and the monument devoted to Miguel Edalgo remind of these events.
