Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe Church in Sabinas, Coahuila, Mexico - Tour By Mexico ® Sabinas is situated 113 km of Monclova via Federal Highway 57 in the State of Coahuila, Mexico.

Sabinas is the most important municipality in the coal mining region of the State of Coahuila.

Considering that the old Sabinas Station was created in 1883 when the first train passed through, we can say that this is a young city. This is not to say, however, that it doesn't have anything to offer. In fact, quite the opposite. Its vitality and strength, similar to the energy that emanates from its coal layers, has been a fundamental factor in building a city that knows how to flatter those who visit it. Sabinas is the departure point for getting to any of its unexplored and surprising places and the perfect starting point for a paleontology excursion or a horseback ride through the midst of the action.

Sabinas is a new place, open for you to have the best of experiences in the best of places.
