pabellón de arteaga
 
This municipality is located in the north-central part of the state.

Pabellón de Arteaga began its existence around the year of 1929, as a base camp for material reception in the construction of the Plutarco Elías Calles dam. By the year of 1964 it was elevated to the title of municipality, giving the antique colony the name of Villa General José de la Peña María de Arteaga (in honor to the Republican general), nowadays known as Pabellón de Arteaga.
 
You can visit the City Hall, which has the biggest and most extensive library in this municipality. La Barranca Recreational Ground is a beautiful place to get in touch with nature, either by sitting by the stream, smelling the great variety of flowers, playing with the turtles or practicing mountain climbing on one of the many cliffs.

Another main attraction is the former Hacienda of San Luis de Letras which has a small chapel in honor to the Virgin of Fatima.
 
Pabellón is also famous for its wine-producing tradition. You can take a tour or just enjoy the exquisite wines. The former Hacienda of Garabato is a true architectural jewel where you can see the Trojes, the Casa Grande, the Tienda de Raya and the chapel ruins. Built by the well-respected architect J. Refugio Reyas. You can also visit the former Hacienda of Santiago along with a chapel dedicated to Saint Santiago.
