Welcome Note

Durango.
The unknown and somewhat wild territory, which more than four centuries ago emerged as a grand construction site beginning with the simple outline of a few streets, still remains in the memory. The long cherished dream has been fulfilled, and today the city of Durango shows splendour where history and modernity, culture and progress harmoniously coexist. What you are about to see is only a hint of what you will discover when you tour the heart of the entity. There’s plenty to do, lots of places to visit and much more to see.

WELCOME to DURANGO! :) ----

== Overview ==

Minor Basilica Cathedral.
At the beginning it was called Villa del Guadiana, and it wasn’t until 1563 when the Spanish captain Francisco de Ibarra founded it as Villa de Durango, rising at the same time as the capital of the so called Nueva Vizcaya territory. Since that moment, the newborn and promising city reached such political, religious and economic relevance, that soon – in the year 1630 – it increased its category by becoming a City. From that point on, that fact marked the common wish of its inhabitants to build and consolidate a metropolis characterized by the greatness in all its orders.
Ricardo Castro Theater.
Touring the streets, plazas, gardens and majestic civil and religious buildings – so full of art and legend – of the city of Durango today, confirms the intact desire to proudly show off the splendour bestowed by its ancestors, which continuously enriches itself for the approval of its visitors. While you tour this noble land you will also get to visit amusing museums, enjoy artistic shows and taste its original gastronomy, you will be shocked with the natural scenarios that surround the city and best of all, you will learn about the hospitality of the people from Durango which is so popular among those that already know it.

== Traditional Grastonomy ==
Pipian.
When the Spanish founded the city they distributed the parcels to build houses and orchards, as well as the fields in the outskirts to grow their crops. Since those days they prepared dry foods because there were long distances between cities and because the harvest was only once a year. Even though the circumstances have changed and today you can get food all through the year, the people from Durango have maintained the custom to prepare dry foods that can be stored. They still make Chile Pasado, Dry Meat, Chorizo, Adobada meat, Chuales, Pinole and Tornachiles. Today people grow tobacco, sweet potatos, corn, chile, beans and squash; they also grow fruits like pomegranate, quince, peaches and apricots, green and red apples. They also raise pigs, livestock and sheep, thus fine dairy products are produced in the region. There is also a family tradition in preparing sweet conserves like sun dried pitted apples and quince, milk candy, quince and apple jellies, and fig jam among others Some of the typical dishes that our state offers are:
