The building has a capacity for 23.000 fans, same that was constructed in the year 2003 in a record time of only 3 months. The first goal in the stadium was scored by the player Hector Gimenez Silvera. The stadium Banorte was completed in just 3 months. In the middle of 2003, the creation of the Dorados was announced, in those times of Culiacan, and with it the professional soccer came to Culiacan. The city had a team already, but a stadium was needed, a building capable of receiving the First A LEAGUE (the promotion league in Mexico) and to fulfill with the requirements of the Mexican Federation of soccer. They thought about the Universitario stadium, but its capacity was very small and it didn’t have sufficient space for an enlargement. And there weren’t many options. Aside of the Humaya River, in the STASE neighborhood, part of the Urban Project Tres Rios, there is a soccer field, which until 2003, it was a court with tradition inside the amateur soccer games, the “princes”, called by the veterans, or el “Carlos Gonzalez and Gonzalez”, named like this in memory of the brewery concessionaire, which gave great support to neighborhood soccer. There was the foundation of the dream of the Sinaloenses soccer players called Dorados. Those same ones that in record time of 3 months, some say it was less, they got up and gave shape to what is today the Banorte Stadium, with an investment of 55 million 238 thousand 236 pesos, and an initial capacity for 14.000 fans. It is granted for 15 years, with the endorsement of the state congress to the company Stadiums of Sinaloa, S.A de C.V. After the promotion of the Dorados of Sinaloa to LIGA MX (first division in Mexico), the Banorte Stadium, had the need to increase their capacity to host matches of the first division. After the promotion of the Dorados of Sinaloa to LIGA MX (first division in Mexico), the Banorte Stadium, had the need to increase their capacity to host matches of the first division. The stadium had an initial capacity of 16.000 fans comfortably seated and the target was to extend it for 25.000. By the year 2005 the remodeling work had a great advance; by 2006 the enlargement was almost finished, the only thing left to build was the stages of the river area, but when the Dorados of Sinaloa have relegated to the promotion league back again the construction of these stages were canceled. Currently the stadium has a capacity of 23.000 fans.

Little Planet Photo Gallery Panoramic Photography How this virtual tour was made In this occasion for the sewing "stitching" of the 28 photographs that I performed with the phantom professional drone 3, I used the software Autopano Pro. In Color Software (www.kolor.com) they have done a great job improving this fantastic program in the last years. Also it is available for Mac and PC and in two versions: Autopano and Autopano Giga. The application is well translated into Spanish and the team of development is opened to listen to the suggestions of the clients. It has some other advantages with regard to PTGui, apart from the language, centered especially on the automation of certain processes such as automatic detection of panorama within a folder or multiple selections of files or multiple file selection.
Culiacan, the first village of the Mexican Northwest, the capital of the State of Sinaloa, is located in the foothills of the Western Sierra Madre where the rivers Humaya and Tamazula give origin to the river that takes the name of the city. It is believed that Culiacan is a Nahuatl word composed from "Col-hua-can" that means "place of those who worship the God Coltzin." In that time, it gave birth to the territory that Culiacan occupies today, when the establishment Huey-Cualhuacán was established in the place that was a required stop for the Nahoas that were traveling to the Valley of Mexico. It is believed that Culiacan is a Nahuatl word composed from "Col-hua-can" that means "place of those who worship the God Coltzin." Already in the colonial times, the Spanish conqueror Nuño Beltrán, established on September 29th, 1531, the Town of San Miguel on the shores of the San Lorenzo River (close to Tabalá). But due to the constant attacks of the natives of the area, they had to move the establishment mentioned above to different places (several times), finally remaining located at the confluence of the rivers Humaya and Tamazula, a place that in present day is called Culiacán Rosales. During the XVI century, this town turned into the center of operations for the conquest, evangelization, and colonization of the North-East of the New Spain. In the following years, the location of this city and its booming population gave rise to the development of various economic activities. Such as livestock, agriculture, trade, among others; that in a whole forged the growth of this city and it was like this that on October 6th, 1821, after having changed its name to the village of Culiacan, independence was sworn in this town. On July 21st, 1823 it is given the category of city, to be separated by a decree of the Congress the provinces of Sinaloa and Sonora. A year later these areas are tightened to the definitely separate in 1830, where the City of Culiacan was declared the capital of the independent state of Sinaloa. Although in the times of Don Plácido Vega, the capital of the State moved to Mazatlan, in 1873 it is brought back to the definite form to Culiacan as the capital. Within the era of modern Mexico, this city had significant events that marked its independent history. Within which we can highlight the promulgation of the first constitution of Sinaloa in 1831 the publication of the first newspaper a year later, the start of the construction of the cathedral in 1842 and the creation of the House of the coin in 1846, among others. It is also worth highlighting the fact that Culiacan was the only city that did not fall into foreign hands at the time of the French invasion, thanks to the Hero Antonio Rosales, for which reason the official name of the city is Culiacan Rosales. Nowadays this municipality includes little more than 4,700 square kilometers (8 % of the state). In the modern times, around 1878, Culiacán counted with three town halls, one in the head with the same name, other in the Badiraguato town hall, and the third one in Quilá. Also, it was constituted like Municipality using the decree published on April 8th, 1915. Nowadays this municipality includes little more than 4,700 square kilometers (8 % of the state). It's economically active population is occupied principally in the sectors of services, agricultural, fishing and industrial. Culiacán, not only is the capital of the state of Sinaloa, but also the economically more competitive municipality of the state due to its productive infrastructure and offer of services; corresponding to little more than 30 % of the entire state industry.

Little Planet Photo Gallery How this Virtual Tour was made The photographs that I took to make this virtual tour were taken in the first minutes of the dawn getting a pretty color of heaven and it is also when there is less contrast because the shadows are very soft. The greatest challenge is the limitation of the camera of the drone, for the images not to be triplicated or moved, the minimum speed that can be used is a quarter of a second; so I had to wait for the light conditions to be sufficient to achieve the correct exposure.
The still young city of Los Mochis, rises proudly as a real gem of the northwest of Mexico. “Mochim” plural of “Mochic” which translates from the cahitan language as “Tortuga de tierra” (land turtle) o “Mochi” name of a plant which abounded in the zone in which it now settles. Doña (Mrs) María Ochoa, daughter of Don (Mr) Zacarias Ochoa who got to meet and deal with Benjamin F. Jhonston, founder of the sugar mill that gave life to the population, testified (and there’s still an original map of that date who´s copy is in “La Casa del Centenario”) that the name had a simpler origin: “Los Mochos”, a nearby ranch, it was called like that because the founder of that family was missing one arm, and the settlers who lived in the socialist colony of Owen, degenerated the term, because of their foreignism they pronounced it “Los Mochis” until finally it remained as: “Los Mochis”. Hail beautiful lady of Valle del Fuerte! Beyond the linguistic paternity of the name, the population who gave its first hesitant steps around the chimneys of the sugar factory, was destined to be called the progressive and beautiful city in which it has become, being among the first in great life quality and of the most progressive of the Mexican Republic. Gone forever are the muddy streets during rainy season and big dust storms during winter. Nevermore will the “black rain” of soot from the chimneys and cane burning from the nearby fields will be seen it. The heavy creaking of the bogies where carries were made from the place of cutting to the mills of the factory. Nevermore will wagons be pulled by trucks and tractors lifting dust storms and children running after them from the settlements and small towns to steal the sweet and juicy sugar canes that were spilled on the sides giving free treats for the poor. Goodbye forever to the pitched and melancholic whistle that marked the life of the mochitenses between great gulps of steam thrown by the big black chimneys always covered in soot. Finally, the factory that stamped agonizingly in the last harvests, ceased to exist. Ironically the city that started out joyous at the beginning of the last century, eventually drowned it and the changes of progress annihilated it. But like the Phoenix, from those black ashes has emerged a new creation! An extraordinary turning point has been opened between nostalgia and tradition. The community of homes made of wood, huts made of mud, two traffic lights by the main street which were subject of admiration by the locals of that time, has had the extraordinary metamorphosis of the silkworm and a butterfly has sprouted that flutters beautifully in the green valley. Today it opens its arms to the brothers of Mexico and the world that arrive by air, sea and land. Today it gets ready to tell everyone, that it is a worthy and beautiful city with all the comforts and services. ¨Come! ¨ She says proudly and self-satisfied. ¨Come! Everyone is welcomed¨ Meanwhile the ones who are here, from the bottom of our hearts and with the most sense of respect and the most intimate gratitude we say to you: Hail to Los Mochis! Hail beatiful lady of Valle del Fuerte!

The night photograph at that altitude is complicated on account of the wind, even if it is really light, the camera can move and the quality will no longer be acceptable. Because of this the diaphragm can’t be closed too much and the ISO has to be higher to get an appropriate shutter speed.

Little Planet Panoramic Photography How this virtual tour was made This virtual tour took place in two stages, the first on Tuesday, October 20 very early, at 6:25 am using a stick three meters high for a semi aerial photography. I remember there was a party atmosphere, many people had spent the night queuing up to buy tickets just to see our baseball team, it seemed no one was sleepy and tired. I got the light for this photograph during the golden hour, there were many clouds with a yellow to orange produce very nice effects in the shadows and lights of the stadium. At night we attended my Consuegro Luis Amarante and our children to the game between the Tomateros and the Eagles of Mexicali, where I did not lose the opportunity and carry out the second stage of photographs. The fact that the stadium is impressive, very comfortable, the building is majestic, the work done by Arch. Jacobo Sevilla and his team is really bright. A stadium to be proud of and we must presume worldwide.
