Socorro, New Mexico

In 1598 Juan de Onate’s Spanish colonization expedition arrived here at the Piro Pueblo at Pialbo. They renamed it Socorro owing to the food and shelter provided by Pialbo’s inhabitants. The pueblo and its Spanish mission were destroyed  during the Pueblo Revolt, and the area was not resettled until 1815. A west bank road connected Socorro to the Camino Real on the east side of the Rio Grande.

Thank you Sam-Quito for this nice card from New Mexico.
