Some of History

Originally known as San Antonio de los Arenales, at the beginning of the 20th century, it received the population that came from the neighboring town of Cusihuiriachi, when the production of the mines collapsed. San Antonio also received a group of Mennonites from Canada in 1923 and as it was also inhabited by Rarámuris, it became the cradle of 3 cultures. Finally, in 1927, the municipality and San Antonio were founded and became Villa Cuauhtémoc.




It is a producer of the best cheeses. The Mennonites also provide sausages, jellies, cookies and bread. The cowboys use beef for the discadas and roast meats; dehydrated ones such as jackals and roasted red chile. The Rarámuris collect corn from their maguechis for their thick tortillas and pinole.

In the old San Antonio de los Arenales there are traditional fairs and also the Mennonite fair-exhibition. It is a fabulous experience to be able to live in the industrial corridor with the Mennonites, their work has diversified and they are no longer only in the primary sector.
Learn about industry and culture at the Mennonite Museum and Cultural Center located at km. 10.5 of the highway to Alvaro Obregón. Upon reservation, they can prepare a tasting for you.
