Bocono

Nature
Boconó is a city in the Venezuelan Andean state of Trujillo. Founded in 1560, this city is the shire town of the Boconó Municipality and, according to the 2001 Venezuelan census, the municipality has a population of 79,710.HistoryOf native origin, the name Boconó comes from the word Komboc, the name of a local river. On October 12, 1548, Diego Ruiz de Vallejo left El Tocuyo, under orders of Juan Villegas, to conquer the Cuicas Province, a name that was giving by the natives that inhabited the area and where the Boconó valley was located, with the objective of taking gold from the mines that were supposedly in the area.In 1558, an argument between Francisco Ruiz, sent by the governor of the province of Venezuela to occupy the sector of los Cuicas, and Juan de Maldonado, representative of the Real Audiencia del Nuevo Reino de Granada, occurred; Juan de Maldonado alleged that his people controlled those lands. Nevertheless, the capable work of Ruiz guaranteed that those lands were under the jurisdiction of Venezuela.In 1786, the Boconó Canton was formed.In 1811, Boconó was declared a city and joined the independence movement. The Spanish Empire reacted by imprisoning and exiling Don Miguel Uzcátegui, Mayor of the city.On two different occasions (June 26–29, 1813 and March 10, 1821), Simón Bolívar visited Boconó, where he installed a base at Boca del Monte. While in Boconó, he stayed at the house of Mayor Jose María Baptista, expressed his admiration of the region, and declared the city "Garden of Venezuela".
