Of all the Chinatowns in the world, only one has a name: La Chinesca, and it is in Mexicali. In La Chinesca, you can tour the basements and learn about the history from the beginning of the last century, travel back in time, and learn about the origins of the Chinese community in Mexicali. In these basements, the Chinese community protected themselves from the weather. At the same time, it was a way of keeping their culture intact. There were hospitals, schools, dormitories, small theaters, and even casinos.
