City of Socorro
City with a Mission
Bienvenidos a Socorro. We're in the heart of El Paso County, just 20 minutes east of Downtown El Paso, Texas. And the perfect place to park your family, business, or your car for a walk through one of the oldest mission in the U.S. More than 30,000 residents already call Socorro home, and more and more businesses already have an address in one of the fastest growing cities in the Southwest. It's a great day to be from Socorro!
