"Torreón" Torreón by ephobius

Torreón Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 7 photos

(see also twin city Gómez Palacio)

Northern city with nice desertic surroundings, located at the western edge of Coahuila State. Twin city Gómez Palacio, Durango State, is just across the dividing Nazas river.

With third twin city Ciudad Lerdo (Lerdo City), Durango, all 3 add up to more than 1 million inhabitants and are known as La Laguna (The Lagoon) region. That name comes from the fact that those rivers do not run to any ocean, instead, they discharge in nearby Mayran and Viesca lagoons.

Metallurgic foundry, cotton fields and textile industry fluorish in La Laguna.

Picture: October 2003 opening of the new sculpture, The Wheat, by famous sculpturer Sebastian.

Plaza del Torreón, stylized tower, symbol of the city (Torreón means big tower in Spanish).

    It is great that Torreon is getting more and more tourism. I lived there for 10 years and I miss it! Best thing there is the people; with beautiful girls.
