In the current territory of Paracas, it flowered the ancestral civilisation of the culture known as Paracas, during the pre-Incan period. This culture was characterized by its textile art, very advanced for that period, due to its funerary rituals and the cranium trepanations, which were made to remove bad spirits. The Paracas culture is also known for deforming their heads until having them lengthened with a conical shape. The archaeological remains of this culture were found by the archaeologist Julio C. Tello in 1925. In 1820, six ships disembarked at its coast, and were part of the Ejército Libertador, from the Freedom Expedition of Peru, commanded by the General José de San Martín. The name Paracas means “sand rain” due to the strong winds that bring sand remains, typical of this territory (those winds reach speeds of 20 miles/32 kms per hour).
Camana was founded as a Spanish villa in November 1539 by Francisco Pizarro under the name of Villa Hermosa de Camana, with the purpose of establishing a urban center that served as nexus between the City of the Kings (Lima) and Cusco. However, the Villa Hermosa was moved to Arequipa when there were climate complications in the territory of Camana, reason why it’s said that Arequipa was founded. It was in 1839, in the republic period, that Villa de Camana was raised to the category of city.
