USA Socorro Mission - La Purisima Catholic Church
- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
The Socorro Mission was established in 1680 when Spanish colonizers from northern New Mexico fled the Pueblo Revolt with Piro natives and other tribes. Flooding caused by the Rio Grande River twice forced the community to rebuild the mission, the third and final building being completed in 1848.
