Cuatrocienegas - Poza de la Becerra, Coahuila, Mexico - Tour By Mexico ® Cuatrocienegas is located 80 km west of Monclova in the State of Coahuila, Mexico.

Although the Jesuits built various missions here as far back as the sixteenth century, it was not until 1800, after repeated rejection by the tribes of the region, that the town was definitively founded. The name of this illustrious city, Cuatrocienegas de Carranza, refers to the marshes that were formed by the abundant springs arriving from four key locations and it being the birthplace of Venustiano Carranza, the Leader of the Constitutional Army. From this the name Cuatrocienegas was adopted for the municipality.
