Santa Rosalía de Camargo, originally called Santa Rosalia, and now known as "Camargo City", is a city in the eastern part of the Mexican state of Chihuahua. It serves as municipal seat of Camargo municipality. It is a colonial town steeped in history. The Mission Santa Rosalía has a beautiful park. Camargo is within a short distance from a small pueblo called Chavira, now Chavira is another neighborhood of the city, and a short distance up the road to the old Precidio San Francisco de Conchos near Lake Boquilla and Lake Colina known as places for tourists to come especially in the summer season, as well as Los Filtros.

History[edit]

During the Spanish conquest of Mexico, the Spaniards came in and waged war against the Native Conchos Indians who lived there. During the Mexican Revolution, Pancho Villa also invaded Camargo. Other Native tribes such as the Apache Indians came down from the Ojinaga, Chihuahua region not far from El Paso, and waged war against the Conchos Indians. Some used the Rio Grande as well as the Rio Conchos to ride their horses into the region. The River provided water as a source supply for survival. The San Francisco de Conchos area was attacked by various tribes.

The region is known for agriculture, cattle, corn, pecan trees and its surrounding mountains. Camargo is ethnically diverse, but mostly of European origin, composed of Spanish, Basque, Portuguese, French, Italian, German, Mennonites, South African Boers and Conchos Indians. The Tarahumara Indians come into Camargo to sell goods to local people and they live throughout the region and up in the mountains.
