Sacramento is a city in the northern Mexican state of Coahuila. The city serves as the administrative centre for the surrounding municipality of the same name.

Sacramento is located at in the state's central region (Región Centro), some 250 km north of state capital Saltillo, and some 50 km north-west of former state capital Monclova, on Federal Highway 30.

It was founded in 1842 as Villa Nueva. It is believed to changed its name to Sacramento ("sacrament") to honour a visit by Fr. Miguel Hidalgo during which he officiated a mass.
