About Puente Piedra
Puente Piedra is a district of the province of Lima. It owns its name to a stone that was used by the Incas to cross the swamps that existed in those times, stone that was used later during the viceroyalty by the merchants. During 1910, because the population weren't owners of the lands, they enter in a conflict with Tomás Marsano, who claimed the lands in order to creat a train. This, however, did not thrive and in 1922 the government fails in favor of the population.
