Sullana is part of the territory where the tallan culture flourished, a culture formed by several ethnic groups that came from the andean gorges located in the Chira valley. It was at this territory that was founded the first Peruvian - Spanish city under the name of San Miguel de Tangara in 1532. But the real foundation of Sullana took place in 1732, under the name of El Principe. Even from the beginning this city stood out for its important development and agricultural production, since the geography of the valley, with fertile lands, favored the increase of this activity. The natural wealth of the Chira Valley attracted the interest of the mochica, chimu and inca populations, who dominated the tallanes in different periods. However the incan conquest lasted approximately half of a century due to the Spanish arrival, who colonized in a progressive way the territory of the pre-Hispanic Peru.
Piura was one of the first cities to be founded by Spanish in Latin America, in this case by Francisco Pizarro in 1532. The name of Piura comes from the word “Pirhua” that in quechua means barn or supply storehouse. In times Piura was a storehouse base to quechua inhabitants. It’s also known as “the carob tree city”, due to its leafy vegetation in the summer rainy season. Numerous ethnic groups have lived in Piura throughout History; among those settlers, the tallanes, vicus and yungas stand out.
