Saltillo is an old colonial city founded in 1575 and is the state capital of Coahuila, the 3rd largest state in Mexico. It is located 539 miles North of Mexico City by way of federal highways 57 and 45.

Because of its close proximity to the U.S., Saltillo is best known for its automotive assembly plants. The industrial, agriculture and commercial activities, as well as its many tourist attractions, have made Saltillo one of the best places to visit in northern Mexico.
