Description of Cosala
Cosala is located 155 km. from Culiacan in the
State of Sinaloa in Mexico. The Royal of the Eleven Thousand Virgins, shortened
its name to the Royal Mines of Cosala is the municipal seat and without doubt
one of the most beautiful villages of the state, keeping a quiet atmosphere
that seem like you are in a story book. As if history had stopped in the times
of the Spaniards. Every little street is a delight. One would want to stay
at least a couple of days in Cosala. Something in the air inspires romance,
an ideal place for lovers...
Francisco Iriarte y Conde, first governor of the state declared
Cosala the capital of the western state in 1826. He introduced printing in
the Sonora and Sinaloa and it was in Cosala that the first newspaper of Sinaloa,
"The Impartial Spectator" was published.
In its surroundings there are attractive places as the Vado
Hondo waterfall and town reservoirs "Comedero" and "El Salto"
a few miles from town. Both these lakes are stocked with large mouth bass.
The museum of Mineralogy is highly interesting, it mainly displays photographs
and documents on the history of mining in Sinaloa.
Cosala was the dominant region in the social and political
life of the State of Sinaloa until it became its capital in the early independent
Cosala is a picturesque colonial town surrounded by myriad
of natural attractions.
