Called Ciudad de los Portales (portales being the roofed walkways lining many storefronts), Alamos is famous for its outstanding colonial architecture: cobbled streets, arches, patios, and interior gardens are an unforgettable trip into the past. Moreover, Alamos is located in a truly unique hotspot of biodiversity, many Golden Eagles call the Sierra de Alamos their home. And befitting such a notable town are notable personalities: tenor Alfonso Ortiz, composer Arturo Marquez, actress Maria Felix, and the one and only Doña all hail from Alamos.
