Description
Alamos (AH-lah-mohs), an early Spanish stronghold in the vastness of northwestern Mexico, was once a remote settlement that supplied services for regional silver-mining operations. The mines were all but depleted by the turn of the 20th century; the town's wealthier citizens pulled up stakes, leaving their colonial-style mansions to deteriorate. A turnaround took place following World War II, when U.S. artists and expats began restoring the old homes to their former glory.
On arcaded Plaza de Armas, the main square, stand the Church of the Immaculate Conception (Iglesia de la Inmaculada Concepción) and City Hall (Palacio Municipal). Mocuzari Dam (Presa Mocuzari), accessed by a gravel road branching north off Mex. 10, offers fishing and outdoor recreation activities.
