“Matehuala is usually just remembered for being the first night south of the border for RVers or where you change buses to go visit the old mining town of Real de Catorce.

Matehuala is a welcoming small colonial city where you can comfortably stroll by parks, old houses and a beautiful cathedral – Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception – a neo-Romanesque cathedral that is a copy of the one in Leon France.”
