San Pedro de las Colonias in Coahuila, Mexico - Tour By Mexico ® When one hears that the San Pedro agricultural colony, founded in 1870, was known for being the core of development in the Laguna Region up until the end of the nineteenth century, they probably will not believe it. However after learning about the cotton boom that this region experienced, reviewing its history, and having the pleasure of walking around its streets, haughtily adorned by its architecture, we find the reasons for such saying.

San Pedro de las Colonias, which was constituted as a town in 1873, was home to Francisco I. Madero and where he wrote the "The Presidential Succession of 1910".

San Pedro was also the setting for the memorable battle of April 12th, where Francisco Villa defeated the federal forces of General Huerta.

Among San Pedro de las Colonias main attractions are:

  • San Pedro Apostol Temple Fitting with the sobriety and beauty imparted in the architecture of the city, this structure was built in 1941.
  • Museum of the Revolution The stone walls of this precious nineteenth century mansion possess testimonies of a rich past of famous people and events. Francisco I. Madero (with his book "The Presidential Succession of 1910") and Francisco L. Urquizo (General of the Revolution and native of San Pedro) have a strong presence in its interior.

  • Bonanza At the end of the nineteenth century and the first part of the twentieth century, the goodness of the cottonseed began to be reflected in the village. Along with the infrastructure and services of a town with potential, beautiful mansions began to be built by well known families in the region. Over time, some of them have been converted into commercial spaces such as offices or restaurants.
