A brief account of our history

Sonora was established as an entity by Act of Congress Federal General October 13, 1830, but it was not until March 14, 1831 when it became effective and installed the first authorities.

When created as “entity”, Sonora and Sinaloa were joined in the call state of the West, formed in the year 1824 by the Federation Charter.

We are the result of the capitulations held in March 1637, between General Pedro de Perea and the viceroy of New Spain, Duke of Escalona.

The General Perea, before their raids and conquests, said the Spanish domination in this region he called the “Nueva Andalucía.”

The name Sonora was promoted to 1648.

A great adventure of missionary conquest took place in Sonora when prevailing ethnic groups professing other religious practices here were conducted awareness campaigns fabulous, long journeys on horseback and eminently rugged desert places, front struggles with foreign groups that engaged in plundering passers, moral and technical training and plenty to fincaron the foundations for change at regional levels, where entire villages were transformed under these expectations, all taught us Don Jesuit Father Eusebio Francisco Kino, with 40 expeditions along 24, leaving a legacy of works and widely recognized routes.

Twenty-six years after the Consummation of the independence of Mexico, Sonora suffered the loss of a major part of its territory. When war broke out with the United States in 1847, lost more than 50 percent of their land, 109 000 574 square kilometers, in the “Treaty of La Mesilla”.

At the time of the Reformation, the State suffered another invasion in March 1865 of the French Army. The battle was fought in Alamos, why it is called “The Battle of Alamos”.

A Hermosillo groups also came French soldiers who were evicted in 1866. In general these battles stood out the Republicans Ignacio Fisheries, Jesús García Morales and Ángel Martínez.

In 1929 General Alvaro Obregon Sonora, Abelardo L. Rodríguez, Benjamín Hill and Plutarco Elías Calles, developed the “Plan de Agua Prieta” on April 13, 1920, against President Venustiano Carranza.

From the same year, four Sonorans held the Presidency of the Republic: Adolfo de la Huerta in 1920, Alvaro Obregon in the same year in 1924 Calles and Abelardo L. Rodriguez in 1932.

What Others Are Saying

Never before had I found a hotel, anywhere, that would rate an excellent in all categories. I am really too picky for that. But our stay at La Posada del Rio Sonora in Banámichi, Sonora, Mexico, was everything we hoped it would be … and so much more. Excellent on every count is a very fair rating for this wonderful place.
We had spent a quick night there about a year ago and decided to return this month for four days to celebrate our daughter’s 18th birthday. The staff and owners could not have been more helpful and accommodating. It was so relaxing, comfortable, and full of memories that we are already trying to decide when, not if, to return. Soon, I hope.
We all had a great time. Our daughter has so many wonderful memories of her Rio Sonora 18th birthday; we’re pleased we were able to send her off into her own adulthood with a grand celebration.
There were so many highlights of our trip it would be pointless to try to list them all, but a few will remain in our hearts for many years:
• The local staff was warm and nurturing. They treated us like they had invited us into their own homes and made sure we understood “mi casa es tu casa.” How gracious!
• The food at the restaurant was delicious. My favorite was the “caldo de queso,” a regional specialty, and the translucently thin tortillas melted in our mouths at each meal. In our daughter’s honor, they prepared her favorite dish, “sopa de albóndigas,” for the birthday dinner.
• As a birthday surprise the staff produced a beautiful and delicious cake for our celebration, complete with candles.
• Side trips to the nearby hot springs and other rural Rio Sonora villages to mingle and wander were exciting adventures, providing a very warm and secure feeling about the jewels along the river valley.
• The colors of the hotel were complemented by the amazing flora within its inner courtyard and throughout the village; the rooms were comfortably furnished, immaculate, quiet, and each unique with its own tile, accents, trim, and décor.
• Sipping a cool brew or shooting back a “caballito” of the local Bacanora on the terrace overlooking the plaza was a meditative way to end each day.
• Last but not least, the feeling of trust and respect that permeated La Posada – for and from the employees, for the guests, and for the community. Such an atmosphere is far too hard to find anywhere these days.
We are actively recruiting friends and family to join us for another visit to La Posada del Rio Sonora.

Stayed January 2014, traveled with family
