The largest metropolis of our State has been molded by a blend of cultures – built on shared Native American land – fertile, wooded and enclosed within two splendid mountain ranges, it was founded by Spanish colonists under Governor Don Francisco Cuervo y Valdes in 1706 and named in honor of Spain’s 10th Duque de Alburquerque (common usage dispensed with the first ‘r’ in the name). The later influx of enterprising American traders and entrepreneurs turned it into today’s bustling hub of commerce and culture.
