Concordia, Mexico with Zeb and Eider Duck

Concordia, Mexico, founded January 20, 1565 was first named Villa de San Sebastian.   Concordia is located in the Sierra Madre Mountains in the state of Sinaloa, in Mexico.   Most of the people make a living by making and selling furniture and pottery.   Last time, Zeb and Eider Duck, showed you a small pottery factory on the way into town.   In the center of town, we found the cathedral.

This church is more than 350 years old.   That makes this church, Concordia’s San Sebastian church, the oldest church in the state of Sinaloa.   The church occupies one side of the main plaza of Concordia.   We love the pretty white benches around the plaza.

Zeb and Eider went inside, but mom did not let us sit on anything in the church.   We did not want to offend anyone there.   This church is often referred to as a stunning baroque landmark with ornate gold detailing.

We really liked this church.   It is so nicely decorated.   We wanted to see the statues in the front more closely.

Aren’t they beautiful?   This church is so pretty and we thought it was very peaceful, also.

The benches outside by the plaza are the perfect place to have a snack and chat with friends.

We hope you leave the beaches of Mazatlan for a while and visit Concordia.   We like Concordia.
