Satevó

Chihuahua

Known as the Estado Grande (“Big State”), Chihuahua, it shows off its size and the rich variety of places to visit. From the route of Chepe towards the Copper Canyon to the many stories kept by the missions and, in the region known as La Meseta, you will find Satevó.

San Francisco Javier de Satevó is surrounded by the rivers Conchos, San Pedro, Santa Isabel and one more that carries the same name of the town. It is approximately one hour from Chihuahua City and one and a half hours from Parral by road.

The climate in Satevó, Chihuahua, is extreme semi-arid so in spring it can reach temperatures above 40º C while in winter it can be as low as -10º C. So think about what kind of weather you like best so that you can plan your trip.

This town was born as a Jesuit mission founded by Jose Pascual in 1640, which was destroyed by the natives who opposed being evangelized. In 1665 it was established again under the name of Santiago Babonoyaba which is now known as the Templo Santiago Apóstol. In 1918, Satevó was attacked by General Francisco Villa.

If you see a sculpture of a cow when you pass by this place, it is because you are in front of the monument to the cattle ranch. This piece is called “Cuna de la Ganadería” (Cradle of the Cattle Ranch) and it is the work of the plastic artist Miguel Valverde, all the iron that was used to make it was donated by the cattle ranchers of the region.
