Sabinas is situated 113 km of
Monclova via Federal Highway 57 in the State of
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.

the building was torn down and replaced with a stone building with brick

been retired forever. The church received its current name in 1939.
