Introducing Saltillo

Set high in the arid Sierra Madre Oriental, Saltillo is a large and fast-growing city, but the center maintains a relaxed small-town feel. Founded in 1577, it’s the northeast’s oldest town, boasting fine colonial buildings and cracking cultural surprises (some leading art galleries and museums). Most attractions are conveniently central, and a burgeoning student population adds energy. It’s also on the main routes between the northeast border and central Mexico, making it the ideal spot hereabouts to break a journey.
