    This was an amazing experience, I never knew it was the second largest depiction of Jesus in the world! Lights are great at night!

    1.5 USD entrance, Beautiful and well preserved, there is a lot to see but it's focused mainly on religion, so beware if you are not Catholic, the paintings are worth it though. check out the temporal exhibitions. You can make a quick tour in Torreón if you go to Arocena - Canal de la Perla - Teleferic - Cerro de la Noas.

    This is the general area where the town of Toreon began. This is now (since 1993) a museum but it was originally built by the architect Federico Wulff for his family. This man was also responsible for several buildings in Torreon such as the Hotel Salvador, the Banco Comermex and many others. He was also the designer of the original plan of Torreon.
    The Casa del Cerro has 15 rooms and a basement. At the foot of the building, two other construction (one of which was Federico Wulff’s office) are today used for expositions. We were fortunate to see one of paintings by Xavier Angel Kermedy and one of sculptures by Jose Luis Ponce Diaz.
    This house was built for confort. No need of air conditionning for the construction was such that the circulation of air is sufficient to keep this house cool. Also, there are apertures in the floors for throwing dirty clothes don for cleaning by the servants.
    The wood floors and ceilings as well as the wooden furniture are beautifull. The view from the top floor is fantastic.
    This is a highly recommended visit.

    Since its rediscovery, the Pearl Channel has undergone a transformation to create a major tourist attraction site. Located in the heart of Torreón’s historic center, it is one of the favorite places for visitors to cool off from the desert heat & go for some underground exploring. It has 4 access points:
    1) Rodriguez and Hidalgo
    2) Esplanade of Cepeda Street between Juárez and Hidalgo
    3) Valdés Carrillo and Juárez
    4) Zaragoza and Morelos
    I entered just a few steps from around the corner of Museo Arocena (at #3: Valdés Carrillo & Juárez). There are 4 showrooms below in these canals and it’s truly a nice museum. I was very grateful that I took the time to come here for 1 hour. It was created around 1891 and came into operation in 1893, to be used as an irrigation canal that carried water from the Nazas River to the east of the city of Torreón. The Canal de la Perla is named after the Hacienda la Perla, which belonged to Feliciano Cobian, who was dedicated to growing cotton in the region. This irrigation canal was an arm of the Torreón Canal which, together with the La Concha Canal, took its flow from the Nazas River. Again, this is a very nice preserved site of Torreon’s history & well worth a visit.

    If you like mining, materials or just want to learn about “Peñoles” company, this museum is perfect to visit. To get there is not that easy as you need to park at the company´s parking area, then to pass at least 2 check points. Staff is friendly even they are security members. There are not tour guides unless you book the visit days before, if you really like this kind of things, it´s worth it to check the info about a guided tour. The building is very nice and rooms are full of valuable information, very good organization and clean facilities. There 2 floors to visit, ground floor is about materials and mining and second floor is about the company. Not recommended for children but if you really want to go try to make a quick tour.

    Nice place, really good ice cream. The only thing is if you're looking for a traditional Capri, not in this store. But they are really good.
