Due to its proximity to the united states, the city played a key role during the Mexican revolution and become a central battleground leaded by Pancho Villa and its Northern Division. Today, Chihuahua City and its Historical Center tell stories of the battles and give a glimpse into the life and work of important personalities such as Benito Juarez, Miguel Hidalgo, Ignacio Allende, and Pancho Villa.

The handicrafts in Chihuahua are produced by the Raramuri, Mata Ortiz, and Paquime artisans and are recognized for their artistic and complex designs. The Raramuri work with elements provided by the Sierra Tarahumara (wood, leather, and stool leaves) while the Mata Ortiz and Paquime artisans produce beautiful clay pottery.
