THE MAYO CULTURE AND THE HISTORICAL TRANSCENDENCE OF NAVOJOA
The territory that Navojoa currently occupies was occupied since pre-Hispanic times by the Mayo Indians whose history is intimately linked with the river and the valley of the same name. Initially Navojoa was founded on the left bank of the Mayo River, but a flood in 1915 forced it to be refounded in the vicinity of the South Pacific train station built in 1907.
WALK THE STREETS OF NAVOJOA
With the conquest in the sixteenth century, Navojoa became a missionary town to evangelize the surrounding area and was a key to the outbreak of the revolution in 1910; it received Francisco I Madero, Felipe Angeles, Alvaro Obregon and Venustiano Carranza among other leaders to later oppose the dictatorship of Huerta and heroically resist a site in 1915.
Come and enjoy the City Hall, the Church of Sagrado Corazon or Cinco de Mayo Square surrounded by monuments.
GO TO THE OLD TOWN OF NAVOJOA
