History[edit | edit source]

  • In 1721 the captains Juan and Francisco de Corvalán y Castilla took possession of the Rodeos.
  • The institution of Junín as department dates from January 18, 1859, when the department of San Martin was divided in two, naming one of them his name and naming the remaining one of Junín.
  • The initial area of Junín was much greater than the one that exists today, since it also included a great territory that later would belong to Rivadavia and Santa Rosa when these were created on March 19, 1884.
  • The department of Junín has a population of approximately 38,000 people. [1]
