Durango has also the official name - Victoria de Durango, a city also known as Ciudad de Durango, which is the capital and the largest city of the Mexican state. It stands at an altitude of 1880 meters. The city was founded on July 8, 1563 by the Spanish Basque explorer Francisco de Ibarra. During the Spanish colonial era, the city was the capital of Nueva Vizcaya in the province of New Spain, which consisted mainly of today of the states of Durango and Chihuahua.

In 2010 there were 518,709 people living in the city, compared to 463,830 in 2005. Spanish and French influence intensified on the city after the proclamation of independence in the early 19th century, although the academic style persisted until the first decades of the 20th century. The city was built on a rectangular street grid in the colonial era. For most of the period after independence until the middle of the 20th century, the layout of the city looked the same as in the 17th century, with the invention of cars and buses, the city became a complex labyrinth of entangling narrow colonial streets that made the city a complex plexus of areas. Only in the 1990s and for most of the first decade of the 21st century did the city government decide to clear some narrow colonial streets to build parks, squares and wider avenues that today continue to act like roads.
