REVOLUTIONARY HISTORY AND COLONIAL CHARM

Hidalgo del Parral is a city with colonial tradition and charm, but at the same time, you can also observe how the Mexican Revolution left a deep mark on this population through the figure of General Francisco Villa.

Popular legends tell that the mine upon which this town was founded was so rich that it seemed like the mineral spontaneously sprouted from the ground. This mine is called La Prieta because the naturally extracted silver is of a dark color.

Tourist Attractions in Hidalgo del Parral

La Plaza de la Identidad Parralense

Here you will find benches, beautiful lampposts, an interactive fountain with 31 water jets programmed to move to the rhythm of music, illuminated with colorful lights. The square is adorned with the statue of the founder of Parral, the Royal Ensign Don Juan Rangel de Biezma.

San José Parish

Located in front of the main square, construction began in 1673 and was completed almost two centuries later in 1886. It is one of the oldest buildings in Parral. Its austere quarry facade highlights the main niche with a statue of San José. Notable are the altarpieces dating back to the 18th century.

Catedral de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe (Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe)

Dating back to 1634, although during those years it was just a more modest adobe chapel. At the beginning, it was decided to build a new structure, which was completed in 1959, becoming a magnificent building with two rectangular towers. The interior highlights the atrium with a large circular stained glass window.

Templo de la Virgen de Fátima

Its walls are covered with rocks and minerals extracted from the mines of the region and La Prieta mine, which currently welcomes visitors.

Other Religious Constructions

Prominent among the religious architecture are the Temple of Our Lady of Rayo and the Church of San Nicolás, both from the 18th century, as well as the Temple of San Juan de Dios, built in the 17th century, which houses the Museum of Sacred Art.

Hidalgo Theater

Another historic building that adorns the city, it was constructed on the grounds that belonged to the Convent and Temple of San Francisco de Asís, which was converted into a barracks in 1865. In the early 20th century, it was decided to restore it, preserving its exterior walls and creating a beautiful French-inspired structure. Over the years, it has undergone some other renovations but remains a witness to Parral's history.

Pancho Villa Museum

Housed in a two-story building, it commemorates the final years of this revolutionary leader. It features a collection of photographs and paintings of the caudillo, as well as some other original historical objects.

Puerta del Tiempo

An eclectic 30-meter-high construction that aims to represent the transition between the 20th and 21st centuries. Its base consists of two mining castles that recall the origin of the town. On top of them, there are two faces, one facing north representing the past, and the other facing south symbolizing the future.

Beneath the gateway, there is a "Time Capsule," an underground chamber that safeguards objects and projects from a generation. The idea is to open it every 20 years to review the plans and add new projects.
