Rosario, a small town about 50 miles south of Mazatlán,
is famous for the altar in the town church. The altar alone makes a visit to El
Rosario somewhat worth the drive. El Rosario was once the richest town in
Southwest Mexico because of the local mining operations. This small town was the
home of the famous Mexican singer, Lola
Beltrán. They have built a small museum in her honor although the museum is
open only sporadically. You might want to do a little shopping for pottery,
furniture or leather products, all of which are produced locally.
