Sinaloa de Leyva (Spaingie pronunciation: [ˌsinaˈloa ðe ˈleʝβa]) is a toun in the Mexican state o Sinaloa.

Sinaloa de Leyva wis establishit as San Felipe y Santiago in 1585 bi Antonio Ruiz, Bartolomé de Mondragón, Tomás de Soberanes, Juan Martínez del Castillo an Juan Caballero.[1] Bi 1590, Ruiz wis its alcalde mayor, an it held nine fowk who ekit oot a livin, but the situation impruivit throu their discovery o the mines o Chínipas, an the arrival o the Jesuits in 1591.[2] At the end o the saxteent century, Ruiz wrote his history whaur he detailed the early history o San Felipe y Santiago, an Sinaloa.

This wis the base for Diego de Hurdaide's subjugation o the Sinaloas, Tehuecos, Ahomes an Zuaques an the extension o Spainyie control ower the Fuerte River glen, an thus tae the northren edge o modren Sinaloa.[3]
