Chihuahua: Explore The Cultural Heritage

logo

Chihuahua is situated at the western flank of a dessert with the same name. It is a city rich in history. During my trip, I found a display of many monuments and buildings.  It is home to artwork which varies from the colonial period till the neoclassical period. With fascinating history amalgamated with culture and art, this city has a lot to offer to travelers like me. I walked through the streets, enjoyed the excursion, and took a tour of Chihuahua. Lose yourself in the history of Mexico; take a look as to what it has to offer.

  • Historical Museum of Mexican Revolution

At Calle Decima, you will be able to visit Pancho Villa’s home. He had a major role to play in the Mexican Revolution of 1910 and 1920.  The estate had been taken upon by the government after the death of the widow of Villa, María de la Luz Corral in the year 1981. The building is filled with memorabilia related to the Mexican Revolution. You will find weapons, documents, personal effects; at the main entrance you will find a photograph of twenty-five women who claim to be his wives.

  • Quinta Gameros

Quinta Gameros is luxurious art Nouveau resident that had been ordered by his wife, Manuel Gameros. The work started in the year 1907 and had been done with at the morning of Mexican Revolution. However, the Porfirian couple couldn’t stay in the couple. I was surprised by the lavish and quirky details.

  • Chihuahua Cathedral

Chihuahua Cathedral is considered to be the finest Baroque monument to be found in northern Mexico. This stands out because of the use of Solomonic columns that isn’t that usual in New Spanish Baroque architecture. Some of the fittings I saw had been produced abroad such as the octagonal window had been made in Germany.
