About Chachapoyas

The people who inhabited these lands were conquered by the Inca Empire, that is why they later joined the Spanish to recover everything lost. As a result of this, the Spanish founded the city as San Juan de la Frontera de los Chachapoyas in the year 1538. Later, they would join the cause of independence and fight alongside San Martín.
