El Fuerte: located to the north of the state of Sinaloa, this magic town is characterized by its historical, architectural and natural heritage which is a legacy of the indigenous communities that inhabited it. These patrimonies can be appreciated in the Plaza de Armas, the parish church, the Municipal Palace, the Mayos ceremonial centers, among others.
El Rosario: small town located 65 km south of Mazatlan was one of the most prosperous regions in northwest Mexico in the exploitation of precious metals such as gold and silver. Inside some valuable pieces of its cultural heritage we can find the Church of Our Lady of the Rosary, made of quarry carved under a Baroque Solomonic style, in its interior it shelters one of the jewels of the Christian art in Mexico: its baroque altarpiece bathed in gold.
Mocorito: placed in the north-central region of the state and inhabited by the Mayo people, in Mocorito you will be able to visit the Plaza Miguel Hidalgo located in its historic center and whose most emblematic buildings are in front of it, the Parish of the Immaculate Conception, the civic square, the Cultural Center, Alameda Park, among others.
Cosala: located in the central region of Sinaloa and whose mining past left its bonanza in its attractive architecture, offers visitors prehistoric art displays (such as cave paintings and petroglyphs), tours where you can appreciate beautiful houses that adorn the urban landscape of town as well as the sober beauty of the temple of Santa Ursula. In addition to this, the Ecological Reserve of the Mineral of Our Lady, its legends, traditions and gastronomy exalt its wealth.
