History[edit | edit source]

  • The department of Pocho took its name in honor of a brave cacique Comechingón called Puchum who lived in the region. Over time, his name became Castilian, but during Peron's government, according to data recorded in the area's documentation, this department was called Eva Perón, later returning to its original name.
  • For the locals it is composed of Alto and Bajo. These two zones are delimited by the Sierras de Pocho and the Bajo is limited by the area of the plains of Chancaní; and Alto by Pampa de Pocho up to the Sierras de Guasapampa.
  • The department of Pocho has a population of approximately 5,000 people. [1]
