History[edit | edit source]

  • In this place the Dominican priests colonized Indians and mestizos teaching them the principles of the Christian religion.
  • Because the Indians of this region were peaceful, they did not oppose the colonizers, and because of this their population was rapidly reduced.
  • In 1855, the current department of Luján was separated from the territory of San Vicente.
  • In 1889, the Villa de San Vicente was renamed Belgrano.
  • On February 9, 1909, the town of Villa Belgrano was declared a city and the name of Godoy Cruz was definitively established.
  • The department of Godoy Cruz has a population of approximately 190,000 people. [1]
