According to the most persistent historians, the villa was founded on the banks of the Tuinucú River, between two valleys that would later be called El Fraile and Pueblo Viejo, although within a few years a move was made toward the Yayabo, where the city took root, became involved in national life, was awarded its status as a city by Royal Order in 1867, and became provincial capital in 1976.
