it does not matter if you see it from far away, from downtown or you are on the hill, this is just gorgeous. Lovely. Try to go up to the Creston by your own risk, it is dangerous, but it worth it.

This battle site where Pancho Villa fought is beautiful and clean. We were grateful for our group member who brushed up on history before coming. The views are amazing.

The Bufa was amazing to go and see. You really get a great view of the city and just a peaceful area in general. There is plenty to see and explore and some of the history you can learn about there is amazing.

You can climb easily but it's steep. You can visit the other pic and you can climb on the top of the rock. The view is amazing. Don't miss it. You can go by car as well if you're afraid of the steps. There is a little train as well.

Great Mexican Revolution museum, it explains the accomplishments of Pancho Villa and helps you understand why he is so loved by Mexican people. The Mirador is very relaxing and the views of the city are great. You can spot the main landmarks, like the Cathedral, the Alameda, San Francisco church and even the San Agustin church with its white stucco... More

You can rather take a steep walk to the top or take a tour in a truck, my friends and I bought some beers at a local store and hiked our way to the top through town, the view is really cool totally worth it
