Janos, Chihuahua

The town of Janos is named after the Janos people, the indigenous inhabitants of the area. The Janos did not survive contact with the Spanish and are now extinct. 

Franciscan missionaries built a mission here in 1640, called Soledad de Janos. The mission was destroyed in indigenous revolts.

Janos is now a town of around 2,700 people.
