Desert to the east, forest to the west

Mexico's 4th largest state. Desert plains to the east and forested mountains to the west.

Famous people was born here: Guadalupe Victoria (Mexico's first President), Pancho Villa (Revolution hero).

Hollywood filmed lots of westerns here, including some with John Wayne.

See my pages on Durango City and Gómez Palacio.
