A brief history about Bucaramanga

Founded on December 22, 1622 by the Spanish Andrés Páez de Sotomayor and Miguel de Trujillo, after defeating the indigenous Guanes - the first inhabitants of the region - who during the 18th century were subjected to the Spanish tyranny. Later in the 19th century, freedom began to consolidate. Bucaramanga grew with urban architecture featuring Spanish features. It still was not a city, it just had a small population made up of 7 houses. In 1857, it was named capital of the department of Santander and acquired the title of city in 1869. Today, it is part of the Metropolitan Area of Bucaramanga together with the municipalities of Floridablanca, Piedecuesta and Girón, and has a population of approximately one million inhabitants.
