Nuevo Casas Grandes & Casas Grandes/Mexico

Introducing Nuevo Casas Grandes & Casas Grandes

Nuevo Casas Grandes, 320km northwest of Chihuahua, is a prosperous country town with wide streets and a vibe similar to dusty small towns in the US Midwest. Its citizenry is an eclectic mix of working folks, farming families and Mormon and Mennonite settlers. Tourism-wise, its function is as a service center for the prettier village of Casas Grandes by the pre-Hispanic ruins of Paquimé (7km south) and the pottery center of Mata Ortiz (27km south).
