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.
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).
