Magical Towns

A Magical Town is one that through time and in the face of modernity has preserved, valued and defended its historical, cultural and natural heritage; and manifests it in various expressions through its tangible and intangible heritage. A Magical Town is a locality that has unique attributes, symbolic, authentic stories, transcendent facts, all these things that mean a great opportunity for the tourist exploitation attending to the motivations and needs of the travelers.

In Sonora we have two Magical Towns: Alamos and Magdalena de Kino. The tourist attraction of both towns includes the unique connection they have with nature.

Magdalena de Kino

Its fascinating history endures to this day, not for nothing is it one of the 132 Magical Towns in Mexico. It is home to the remains of the missionary Eusebio Francisco Kino and one of the places where San Francisco Javier, who, like Father Kino, was a Jesuit, is most worshipped. Its foundation dates back to 1687, and you can already guess the name of the person in charge. Like other Sonoran missions, it stands out for its colonial air, the coziness of its spaces and the hospitality of its inhabitants.

In Magdalena is the Reserve of Los Sahuaros, accessible by car and you can coexist with nature in a large space. There is also Rancho San Fernando, where you can go horseback riding, make bread and traditional food; you can hike, observe flora and fauna, among other activities typical of a Sonoran cattle ranch. It is also special for those who practice hiking and nature photography. There is also the Ecotourism Ranch El Peñasco and Hacienda La Escondida.

Álamos

Also known as "The City of Portals", Alamos will surprise you with its magnificent architecture, a fusion of Spanish, baroque and indigenous. Walking through its cobblestone streets and alleys, through its restored old mansions, or among its historic and religious buildings, is to be transported to another era. It hosts the most important cultural event in the Northwest, the Alfonso Ortiz Tirado International Festival, since it is the birthplace of the famous doctor, tenor and composer to whom the celebration alludes.

In Alamos there are also tourist ranches, such as La Sierrita, El Palomar and Acosta Rancho; and sites for camping and kayaking, such as the Flora and Fauna Protection Area "Sierra de Alamos-Cuchujaqui River", La Huerta de los Urrea, La Cacharamba Park, La Sierrita and La Aduana, in addition to hiking and mountain biking in La Colorada Park, and visiting the various spas in the region.

In this second destination, you will find the recently inaugurated Pilares Dam, which offers you a water spectacle and the imposing natural pillars that deserved homage by naming them after the dam.

In addition to the above, Alamos has the last vestige of lowland jungle in northwestern Mexico and a favorite of tourists is bird watching in the Sierra de Alamos Cuchujaqui River Reserve that includes endemic and migratory birds, a variety of 400 different birds.
