Ciudad Hidalgo (formerly Villa Hidalgo), is a city that is the municipal seat of the municipality of Hidalgo in the northeastern part of the state of Michoacán, Mexico. It is named after the Mexican liberator Miguel Hidalgo. The city was founded on the site of the Tarascan Indian village of Taximaroa "place where wood is worked". The city was once a major lumbermill center with up to 50 lumberyards as late as the early 80's. Today, Ciudad Hidalgo is still surrounded by extraordinary vegetation. Its main attractions are its churches such as San Jose, which features a stone cross made soon after the Spanish conquest. Parks and surrounding villages such as El Caracol, San Antonio, Pucuato, Morelos, Mil Cumbres and Huajumbaro add to Ciudad Hidalgo's charm as well as nearby haciendas such as Chaparro, which was once one of the biggest haciendas in Michoacan and Mexico boasting its own railroad.
