Villa del Rosario is a Colombian municipality and town located in the eastern part of North Santander department. It is part of the Metropolitan Area of Cúcuta. The municipality is bordered to the north by Venezuela and the municipality of Cúcuta, to the south by the municipalities of Ragonvalia and Chinácota, to the east by Venezuela and to the west by the municipality of Los Patios.Basic informationFounder: Ascencia Rodríguez de Morales y José Díaz de Austudillo.Population: 65,337Elevation: 320 m above sea-levelArea: 228 km²Climate: 26 °CDistance to Cúcuta: 4 kmCoordinates: 72° 28' O / 7° 50' NRivers: Táchira River.HistoryHistorians agree that the founder was Don Asencio Rodriguez in 1750.Around 1760 several farms were established in the area now known as "the Old Rosary". Some of the most important residents in the valleys held a meeting on 15 July 1771 with the intention of formalising the creation of the parish. They petitioned the Spanish monarch Carlos IV, to be granted the title of Villa for the settlement.Consequently, on 18 May 1792, the title of "Noble, Leal y Valerosa Villa" was granted by Royal Warrant to the parish of Our Lady of the Rosary. Villa del Rosario contributed many great men, most notably General Francisco de Paula Santander, famous as a soldier and legislator, whose achievements in the Revolution and the formation of the Republic made him prominent in public administration and the founding of Colombia's particular form of democracy.
