La Purísima Concepción de Nuestra Señora de Caborca

 

 


The centerpiece of Pueblo Viejo is the Kino mission church La Purísima Concepción de Nuestra Señora de Caborca, first completed in 1693.  The church has burned, been damaged
by floods and been rebuilt several times over the centuries, but it still retains its original charm.

Although the church is no longer active, services are still held
there Saturday evenings.  A prominent sight in Caborca, it is
easily located, at the southern end of the street Seis de Abril.

A local group coordinated a restoration of the temple for its
bicentennial in 2009.  Since then, a private benefactor has also donated a desert botanical garden on the temple grounds.Click here to see photos of the garden.
