Hermosillo was listed as one of the most livable cities in Mexico, as published in the study The Most Inhabitable Cities of Mexico in 2013 and 2018 by the company Cabinet of Strategic Communication.
The city was ranked as the seventh most competitive city in the country according to the Mexican Institute for Competitiveness (IMCO), based on factors such as its economic diversification, geographical location, access to education, government, innovation and international relations, according to the urban combat analysis released by that institution in 2016.
The origin of Hermosillo dates back to 1700, when the villages of Nuestra Señora del Pópulo, Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles and the Santísima Trinidad del Pitic, inhabited by yaquis, seris, times and lowlands.
Years ago, there had been internal difficulties among the Indian people with low birth rates, and as a result they had moved away from their duties.
The purpose of the city was to contain the Seri Indians and times, in order to protect the Hispanic expansion under the name of the Royal Presidio of San Pedro de la Conquista, named in honor of the Virrey Don Pedro de Castro and Figueroa, Duke of the Conquest and Marquis of Gracia. The explorer in charge of the foundation of the peoples was Juan Bautista de Escalante, who managed to pacify the situation, on May 18, 1700, giving a speech, from which this part is reproduced:
commanding them not to have any wars in the future, but to live like Christians and to deal with each other with fairs of the clothing of their use and seeds of their plantations, to which they replied from one side and the other, who would do so by thanking me very much for the good that made them settle down.
In 1718, on the orders of Governor Don Manuel de San Juan and Santa Cruz, the town of the Holy Trinity of Pitic was repopulated; on september 29, 1725 the seris settled in the populo rose up in a war era and invaded the people of Opodepe. The Seris were persecuted in order to punish them until they signed peace in January 1726, and they were settled in the Pópulo and in the points called Alares and Moraga; the president of the Pitic was formed after uncertainty about the bellicosity of the indigenous people.
Presidio of San Pedro de la Conquista del Pitic
In June 1741, Don Agustín de Vildósola established the San Pedro prison of the Conquista del Pitic.
Nine years later, the prison troops were transferred to El Pópulo, in the current municipality of San Miguel de Horcasitas. As a result of this action, the Pitic was in a very precarious situation, because several residents emigrated for fear of Serbs.
With the settlement of the prison on the verge of disappearing, the higher authorities ordered a group of soldiers to remain in place to ensure the security of the neighbors.
In 1772, the mayor Don Pedro of Corbalán ordered the construction of a canal on the left bank of the Sonora River, to water the land and the gardens.
Villa del Pitic
Before the end of the 18th century, the former President of Saint Peter of the Conquest of Pitic became Villa del Pitic.
On February 9, 1825, the Villa del Pitic was established as head of the party, under the department of Horcasitas. This coincided with the urbanization that the real surveyors gave him, as he progressed steadily.
In 1827, the city had about eight thousand inhabitants, and its urbanization was very curious, as the houses were scattered in all directions. The region was fertile, well cultivated and provided abundance of life and still many luxuries. He was already, very cheap, high-quality beef that is famous to date.
Town of Hermosillo
On 5 September 1828, by decree No. 77 of the H. Legislature of the Western State, the name of Villa del Pitic was removed and the name of the City of Hermosillo was imposed on him in honor of Jalisco general José María González de Hermosillo, who in late 1810 had carried out the task of the national insurrection to Sinaloan lands, then part of the Western state as well.
On March 12, 1831, the State of Sonora and Hermosillo was founded as its first capital from May 14 of that year to May 25, 1832, when the capitalist powers were transferred to the city of Arizpe. In 1837 the city was erected at the head of the district of his name. Also on that date, Don Pascual Iñigo started the construction of the Chapel of Our Lady of Carmen.
Also stresses that on 14 October 1852, in the city, a section of filibusters under the command of Gaston de Raousset-Boulbon confronted and defeated the national forces, which were under the direction of General Miguel Blanco of Estrada; this was part of a revolutionary campaign for independence that aimed to turn Sonora and Baja California into French colonial territories. However, Raousset stayed only a few days in the city, choosing to go to Guaymas to continue his campaign where he would finally be defeated by General José María Yáñez Carrillo at the Battle of Guaymas in 1854.
On May 4, 1866, within the framework of the Second Mexican Empire of Maximilian Habsburg, the Republican troops commanding General Angel Martínez attacked and took over the city, which was defended by imperialist forces under Colonel María Tranquilino Almada. But a few hours later, he fell back into the hands of the empire's forces. On November 13, 1866, General Martínez took the city back in blood and fire, causing the imperialists to flee, who recovered it eight days later.
In 1879, Hermosillo became the seat of state powers again, thanks to the management of the interim Governor Don Francisco Serna, at least in an interim form. However, when the new Political Constitution of the State of Sonora was issued on 15 September 1917, it was definitively confirmed that the city of Hermosillo is the seat of the State powers, as stated in article 28 of the Constitution.
On November 4, 1881, in front of the wooden station of the Sonora Railway, dozens of people gathered at the opening of the Guaymas-Hermosillo railway. Don Carlos Rodrigo Ortiz Retes arrived on the train, accompanied by the commander of the Military Zone, the brigade colonel José Guillermo Carbó. Months later, a cargo and passenger service would be established between Guaymas and La Nogales.
In the early 20th century, Hermosillo had about 14,000 inhabitants. During the Mexican Revolution, forces loyal to Francisco Villa were expelled from the city by General Manuel M. Diéguez. After the murder of Francisco I. Madero in 1913, Venustiano Carranza, then governor of Coahuila sought refuge in Hermosillo. Here Carranza began the Constitutionalist movement, because of this, Hermosillo has the nickname "the revolutionary capital of the country".
At the end of the 19th century and in the first two decades of the 20th century, Chinese immigrants arrived in the state of Sonora. One of the settlements with a significant number was the city of Hermosillo. Some of these immigrants had money and used it to set up businesses, especially in the manufacture of shoes and clothes. Some of the most successful businesses with Chinese owners in Sonora were in Hermosillo and were selling goods to other parts of the country. In the 1920s, however, anti-Chinese sentiment in the state of Sonora was strengthened, causing many to flee to Mexico City or the United States.
In the 1980s, Ford built a plant in the city, which had a huge impact on the economy of the city and the state. A whole chain of suppliers was also developed around the assembly plant and further helped economic growth in Hermosillo. Hermosillo was selected due in part to its proximity to the United States.
In 2000, Pancho Búrquez businessman for National Action was elected as municipal president. In that triennium, the municipality won national awards (such as that of the Federal Government's Office of Comptroller and Administrative Development, as well as the International City/County Management Association as one of the most transparent cities in the world). Investment grew at the beginning of the decade thanks to the ease of doing business.
One of the most important events in Hermosillo was the shooting of Guardería ABC on June 5, 2009. According to the Attorney General of the State of Sonora, there were 49 deaths in the fire at the ABC kindergarten. The fire apparently started in a warehouse with government documents that were planned to disappear, and then spread to kindergarten. Most of the children died from asphyxiation. There were about 100 children inside the building, firefighters and the population had to make holes in the walls to rescue the children, who ranged from six months to five years old. This caused a huge uproar both nationally and internationally and the society's demand for justice. As a result of these events, on 3 June 2010, the decree was published in the Official Journal of the Federation "Declaring a national day of mourning on 5 June, following the tragedy that occurred at the "Guardería ABC, Sociedad Civil" in Hermosillo, Sonora, on 5 June 2009" and "In a sign of national mourning, the left is remembered The National Flag at half-mast on June 5th of each year." Similarly Derived from the activism of the parents of the victims and citizen organizations, year after year they are reminded to release pink and blue balloons on behalf of the children of the kindergarten since the tragedy, the General Law on the Provision of Services for Child Care, Care and Comprehensive Development was thoroughly amended, The law governing the operation of day care centers at the national level. was published in the Official Journal of the Federation on 27 October 2011.

Although, one can say that meat is the specialty of this state, there is also a rich agriculture and the sea also pays off. One of the main dishes is undoubtedly the machaca, which was born because of the need to conserve beef for long seasons due to the extreme weather. Many sonorcan dishes are seasoned with chiltepín, a chili pepper born on a small wild plant, and are accompanied by "tortillas de agua" or "sobaqueras" (omelets of water). These are similar to flour omelets, but much thinner, and so large, up to half a meter long.
