Welcome to Angangueo
This drowsy mining town is the most popular base for butterfly-watchers, because it’s close to both the Sierra Chincua and El Rosario sanctuaries. The town is layered into the hills and replete with pine forest, grazing land and cornfields. Most services can be found along a single main drag with two names (Nacional and Morelos). There are two attractive churches, including the 18th-century Templo de la Immaculada Concepción, on Plaza de la Constitución, the center of town, from which Nacional runs down the hill.
