Where to Go / What to Do in Ciudad Juárez

Ciudad Juarez offers great business, entertainment and culture options for its more than 1.4 million tourists visiting each year for being the key border town for US-Mexico affairs. There are abundant and interesting shows, exciting car and motorcycle races, “charreadas”, bullfights and golf tournaments. Its neighbor city of El Paso, Texas is one of the plazas with greatest commercial activity along the US Southern area. Guadalupe Cathedral and Mission Ciudad Juarez Cathedral is notable for the beauty of its stained windows and its façade of neoclassic style. It began to be built in 1935 to be attached to the Mission of Our Lady of Guadalupe of Paso del Norte, then under the leadership of Franciscan Friar Garcia de San Francisco for indoctrinating the Indians. It is currently the corner stone for truly understanding the history and legend of Ciudad Juarez. Ciudad Juarez History Museum This beautiful building has been the scenario of memorable historical events, not only for the city but for the whole country. It was inaugurated in 1889 as the Border Customs Office. Outstanding among its historical anecdotes is the first interview between the then president of Mexico, Don Porfirio Diaz, and United States, William Taft, in 1909. This is where the Ciudad Juarez Treaties were signed, the culmination of the Mexican Revolution’s first stage, after which, Don Francisco I. Madero set in this space his office as Republic’s provisional president. Currently, it shows an interesting collection of photographs and documents related to the Mexican Revolution and the city.
