Coahuila is one of Mexico's 31 component states. It is located in the north of the country. To the north Coahuila accounts for a 512 km stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border, adjacent to the U.S. state of Texas along the course of the Rio Grande (Río Bravo del Norte). Coahuila also borders on the Mexican states of Nuevo León to the east; San Luis Potosí and Zacatecas to the south; and Durango and Chihuahua to the west. With an area of 151,571 km², it is the nation's third biggest state. It comprises 38 municipalities (municipios). In 2000 Coahuila had an estimated population of some 2,300,000 inhabitants. The state has several attractive features, such as its forests, springs, deserts, large cities and small villages. However, its main attraction is undoubtedly its open, friendly people. The state is divided into four distinct areas; the southeast, an area of valleys and mountains, as well as historical and paleontological sites and fascinating museums, the center, with the industrious city of Monclova as its focal point; the border, Piedras Negras being the most important city in the area, and La Laguna, a semi-desert area where the Coahuilans overcame adverse conditions.
