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.
