This fact shows the existence of at least one high-ranking chieftaincy, subordinated to the power of the tribe that ruled Cacique Garabito at later times.
On the block of land donated by Don Matías Robles and with the initiative of Don Ezequiel de Jesús Morales, the construction of the church began in 1870.
The temple was completed in 1880, when an ecclesiastical decree created the parish of Santa Ana, and arrived here to take care of it the Presbyter Don Miguel Pérez.
