The word Chincha comes from the word “chinchay”, which means “jaguar”, the main deity of the Chincha culture. The chincha are considered the most renowned merchants of the pre-Hispanic period, skillful to transport goods through the maritime and terrestrial routes. This culture resisted to the inca domination, but was defeated in the 15th century, and was assimilated to the empire; with the passing of time the chinchas under the inca domination contributed to expand the empire.In 1537 with the Spanish arrival the city was founded under the name of “Villa Santiago de Almagro”. It was in the colonial period that took place the miscegenation between indigenous, Spanish and black people, what supposed a cultural change that would establish the basis of the future culture of the modern Chincha. In October the 13th 1900 a law divided the province of Chincha, and so the capital moved to Chincha Alta.*A curious detail is that Chincha could have been the peruvian capital, but the murder of Diego de Almagro changed completely the plans of the colonial organization.
The territory of Pisco was the place where the main pre-Hispanic cultures were settled, from 1000 B.C., and so it’s one of the richest and most abundant provinces in archaeological remains. The cultures that stand out are Paracas and Nazca, both maximum examples of the pre-Hispanic textile and ceramic arts, respectively. During the colonial period was founded the city of Pisco as Villa de San Clemente de Mancera, altough its settlers used to call the city Villa de Pisco. The meaning of Pisco is bird in quechua. This flourishing port villa suffered the attacks of the most well-known pirates of that period, besides natural catastrophes that forced the city to move to the current place, at the south of the Pisco river mouth. This is how in 1689 the city would be again founded, but this time, under the name of Villa de Nuestra Senora de la Concordia de Pisco.In the last years of the colonial period, near the Independence of Peru, Jose de San Martin arrived to Pisco. He disembarked in the Paracas bay, place where the first flag of Peru was created. For that reason among others in 1832 Pisco was declared Villa and Port of the Independence. However, it was in 1898 that the villa obtained the title of city, transforming into the capital of the province. Nowadays the city preserves its fame and prestige as port and agricultural city, besides its rooted winemaking tradition that go beyond borders.
