El Centro is a town in southern California, close to the Mexican border. It is the southernmost desert city in the United States, and the largest city below sea level in the United States. It is located in the Colorado Desert, which is in turn a part of the Sonoran Desert.
Juan Bautista de Anza explored the area in 1776, and settlement began in the mid 1800's.
