Description

Unlike other cities in Mexico, Hermosillo was not a Spanish colonial town and was urbanised only a century ago; and yet there is a lot to see and experience! The buildings and structures in the town have influences of Spanish, Mexican and French-style architecture. The city is a gateway to the Sonoran Desert, the beautiful dunes of the Altar Desert, the Volcanic area of El Pinacate and the fantastic beaches of the sea of Cortez, just 250 km from the US border.

In this Online Experience, I will show you the Cathedral and Centennial area. You will have the opportunity to see buildings such as the Government Palace which resembles the old fortress of the northern borders as well as reflects some French influences in its architecture. Later I will walk to the older part of town where I will show you colourful murals, old plazas and the food market. In the old city, you will also see the symbolic 'Cerro de la Campana' hill. En-route to the Madero Park, visit monuments like the statue of Jesus Garcia, a brave man who gave his life to save hundreds of people by taking an explosives-laden train on fire out of town. We will finish the tour at the Del Carmen Chapel, the oldest building in the city.
