Matamoros: What To Do And Where To Go?

Matamoros where culture, history, and modernity are comes together. All throughout the city, I found well-maintained structures from the 19th century. Some of these have been converted into schools, auditoriums, and museums. Even though this is an unexplored city, there are various attractions that you will come across. Here is a small guide to the best attractions to look out for.

  • Nuestra Senora del Refugio

This is a cathedral that was developed in 1833. Since then it has undergone many renovations because of the damage caused by the natural forces. The tower of the cathedral had been destroyed by a hurricane. The final restoration was done in 1987. Inside the cathedral, I came across a replica of the Pieta sculpture of the Vatican. This had been made by Michelangelo Buonarroti, the genius. It is the biblical representation of Mother of God embracing Jesus’ lifeless body.

  • Museum of Mexican Agrarianism

The museum has been built on the land where the first land distribution of Mexico took place. This is a unique museum having a display of modern vignettes with an enormous collection of natural tools which had been used in previous times along with several historical weapons.

  • Fort Casamata Museum

This building is only one of its kind to thrive in this city. Fort Casamata Museum showcases things that speak of the development and the origin of Matamoros. I found that it also depicts the military action that happened there. Apart from this, I came across an outdoor area for events, an archive, a café, and also a souvenir shop.

  • Cross House

The French style building is quite important for the Matamoros resident since it is only structure of its type in the city. Meliton Cross was the first owner of the property. He decorated this place in an elegant manner.
