History[edit | edit source]

  • The reason for the creation of the city was the need to establish a nearby point as a crossing station to cross the Andes Mountains on the commercial road that ran from the Río de la Plata to Santiago de Chile.
  • The Second Triumvirate in 1813 decreed that the province of Mendoza, together with San Juan and San Luis, form the Intendancy of Cuyo.
  • On March 1, 1820, was signed the act by which Mendoza, San Luis and San Juan broke the ties that linked them to the Intendancy of Cuyo, thus acquiring sovereignty as independent provincial states.
  • The municipality of Mendoza was created in 1861.
  • At the end of the 19th century Mendoza received a significant number of immigrants, mainly of Italian, Spanish, French, Arabic, Hebrew, etc.
