The origin of Huancayo’s name is wanka (rock) and yock (someone who has something). It means the place where the rock is.Capital of the Junín Department, the province of Huancayo is one of the richest of the Andes. In the past the city was inhabited by the wancas who, despite their reputation of warrior culture, were dedicated to agriculture. Before the city was subjoined by the incas in 1460, the city was settled by the huaris. Some colonial houses of the city are witnesses of the Spanish invasion in 1572. The church of La Merced has traces of the invasion and it’s the place where the Peruvian Constitution was signed in 1839.There is a handmade fair celebrated every Sunday at the Huacanvelica Avenue.
About Cerro de Pasco
Cerro de Pasco was born as a mining settlement during the XVI century. It became an important outpost for the spaniards, due to the decline of the Potosí mines. During several decades the area was exploited by several travelers and adventurers who were seeking new ventures. Those who settled told tales of how they had earned, as to even buy nobility titles, although the town was struck by more than one tragedy, such as an earthquake that buried 300 people. Daniel Alcides Carrión, a martyr of the peruvian medicine, was born in this city. He dedicated the last years of his life to fighting a peruvian disease, called verruga, which he injected into himself in order to better describe its symptoms. Although he eventually died, his sacrifice and his study allowed others to find a cure, which in turn saved many lives.
