Torreon Mexico - Tour By Mexico ® / photo V.Hugo Mireles Torreon is located in the State of Coahuila, Mexico; 277 km west of Saltillo via Federal Highway 40 in a region known as La Laguna.

Lying beyond a city that offers complete and excellent quality services to tourists is this enormous cultural richness, represented by its history, art and customs. When a destination is not subjected to a predisposed seasonality for tourism, when it attracts its visitors in a natural and spontaneous manner, and when it succeeds in being attractive everyday and offering many different things to do, we can say it has everything.

Torreon, which began its growth in 1893, has established itself as an original symbol of Mexico allowing visitors the ability to get to know the most unique faces of our country. Even better, it puts it all within your reach.
