Old Train Station in Durango, Mexico


⠀ Old Train Station in Durango, Mexico
⠀ Last weekend I had a very quick 2-day trip to my original hometown of Durango after about 3 years of not visiting. Unfortunately, due to that time constraint I wasn’t able to visit those beautiful landscapes and adventures the State offers and I’m so looking forward to explore (to get a peak of those places, check out my uncle @jorge_salum’s awesome photos), but I did get to stop at some places in the city to snap at least a couple of shots.
⠀
This city is almost half-a-Millenium old, and as such it has seen a lot of history. It’s actually the city in the North of Mexico with more registered historical buildings, which stand proud and beautiful as witnesses of the passing time. ⠀ This train station took about 6 years to build before it opened in 1925, and is so beautifully conserved (as most historical buildings here) it’s been casted as location for a couple of hollywood movies. ⠀
Its day job, though, is being the workplace for a government institution, but it can be visited to enjoy its construction and the cool mural inside, and for a good eat at the restaurant next to it.
