It is believed that the village of Bernal was founded in 1647 by Lieutenant Alonso Cabrera.

He came with ten soldiers and three of his sons at the request of the native Indians. They wanted him to insure the safety of their crops, jobs, and women in this rugged area. When the Spaniards arrived they built a small building which they named Presidio, or fort, but it was never used for this purpose. Today the villagers enjoy water, drainage, electricity, telephones and good roads. They are known for the wool they produce as well as for their beautiful weaving.
