Mexico – Chihuahua State – Chihuahua

Posted in Chihuahua, Chihuahua State, Mexico on February 1, 2017 by gannet39

Chihuahua is the capital city of the state of the same name. My stay here was even shorter than in Parral (around eighteen hours) but I did manage to eat out once before catching the plane back to Mexico City which is why I’m bothering to write.

If I’d had longer I would have checked out the cathedral in the main square, Plaza de Armas. It has a beautiful facade (I drove past it in a taxi) and is considered by some to be the finest example of colonial architecture in the north of Mexico.

My research indicated that there are a few nice restaurants around the square eg Meson de Catedral (see my Google map).

La Casa de los Milagros (Intermediate B+), Calle Guadalupe Victoria 812

An atmospheric mansion, over 110 years old, with a covered internal courtyard and various nooks and crannies. They have live music at the weekends.

I had a T-Bone con papa asado, toreados y refritos; a steak with baked potato, roasted chile and refried beans (B).

I stayed at the Holiday Inn www.ihg.com at Escudero 702 which was very comfortable. The suite had a kitchen should you have the time and inclination to shop and cook.

I didn’t see any of the famous dogs around but I did read up on their history which is quite interesting.
