"Altos Hornos" Monclova Things to Do Tip by HAWLEYJ

Monclova Things to Do: 3 reviews and 3 photos


Monclova is built upon a huge metal refining factory called "Altos Hornos" (meaning "tall ovens"). This factory takes up many city blocks, and has it's own railways to each building. Very interesting! You can even see them pouring the molten metal at some sites!
