Route of the Rio Sonora


The town of Bańamichi was settled in 1639 by Bartolome Castanos and Pedro Pantoja, Jesuit missionaries. The name comes from the Opata language and means " where it gives to return the water".

Community attractions include the Nuestro Senora de Loreto Temple , which was begun in the 17th century and retains it original structure with additions from the 1940s.  The Hidalgo Plaza in the town center contains the Piedra Historica, an ancient petroglyph which scholars believe represents an irrigation map. The nearby parks of Bacachi and El Baceran allow visitors to enjoy the natural surroundings of this part of Mexico.

Both the Hotel Los Arcos de Sonora and La Posada del Rio Sonora hotel are well worth a visit. 

The principal economic activity in the area is agriculture including large cattle ranching.  Other activities include manufacturing and small commercial business.
