My mother was born and raised in Torreon.  This city turned me into a proud Mexican.  I lived here for over a year as a teenager.  Just a few sights of my beloved Torreon.

The Hill House or Casa del Cerro was designed by a German, Mr. Federico Wulff.  I went to this German castle museum many times and it is amazing. This engineer, Mr Wulff, also designed the railway system in Torreon.

His works were the catalysts to a creating a booming modern city and the population boom was overnight.

The Cristo de las Noas is an awesome sight.  The city looks amazing at night from atop that lovely hill.
