San Jose del Cabo was founded in 1730 by jesuit priest Nicolas Tamaral, who was killed by the local Indians, the pericus tribe when he punished a pericu shaman by violating the anti-polygamy decree, the Indians rebelled and burned both San Jose del Cabo and Satiago Mission.
By 1767, virtually all the Indians had died, either by European disease or by Spanish skirmish. San Jose del Cabo remained an important military outpost until mid 19th century.
