Long Description:
Originally named Pueblo Quemado, after an ancient burned-out Indian pueblo located nearby, Cordova was settled prior to 1748, but was abandoned due to Indian attacks. Permanently re-settled by 1750, the village was renamed Cordova after a prominent local family. The village chapel, San Antonio de Padua, is an outstanding example of Northern Mexico art and architecture. Cordova is home to a unique style of woodcarving begun by Jose Dolores Lopez (1868-1937).
