Cultura de Coahuila

The harsh climatic conditions typical of the Coahuila's land have shaped the hardworking and persevering character of its inhabitants. But that does not necessarily mean they are not as joyful and colorful as the rest of their countrymen. The fabrication of wool serapes, colorful blanket-like shawls, is an art brought to the state of Coahuila by the Tlaxcala natives. Local festivities and celebrations are highlighted by peasant dances which greet the harvests obtained from the land, such as the Pateno Jarabe and the Dance of the Wild-Lettuce, as well as by local adaptations of European dances like the Contredanse, Polea, Redova, and Schottische. Northern gastronomy shared by neighboring states of Chihuahua, Sonora, Nuevo Leon, and Coahuila, consists of flour tortillas, grilled beef, dry meat, and the cabrito al pastor or shepherd's goat. On the other hand, the Saltillo region has a tradition regarding particular local dishes such as the caramel spread known as cajeta or the quince jelly, as well as canned fruits including guava, peach and apricot. Not to forget the fact that in Coahuila, the winery production in Parras usually complements meals with 100% Mexican fine wines and liquors.
