The Villa of Garzón

Garzón was founded in 1892 by Mr. Fermín de León.

It was a staging post located near Garzón stream and the Royal Road (Camino Real) that leads to Rocha, where the then Governor Vicente Garzón had a saltery (saladero).

Until 1940, there was a windmill there and around 2000 inhabitants lived in the place.
