Juárez, My Home Town ...

Ciudad Juárez, the Old Paso del Norte...
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Juárez is Mexico’s sixth largest city of about 1.3 million people. Bridges over the Rio Bravo connects Juárez with its sister-city El Paso, Texas. Together, they create almost one metropolis destination that shares a close historical bond. In the 16th century, Spanish explorer Juan de Oñate led colonists to the south bank of the Rio Bravo which was originally named “Paso del Norte” which expanded to the north bank of the river. After signing the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848, the area was split into two cities with Juárez (south bank) belonging to México and El Paso (north bank) belonging to the United States.

Juárez is a colorful, festive city of México.
