RIOBAMBA-GUAMOTE-MACAS: A CENTENARY DREAM
For a period, greater than one hundred and twenty-five years of republican life, the collective memory of several generations of Chimboracenses have kept the hope, although truncated, to be integrated, as a province, to the eastern region of the Upano Valley ...
The Casa de la Cultura of Chimborazo must persist in their efforts to transform dreams into realities. Therefore, we now pass on to children and young people, those contributions that because of their significance are preferred due to the urgencies posed by the mad disputes of spaces from the development hubs that, at least until the near future, are reluctant to see progress consolidated in the central region of the country…
Two important milestones: The expedition that began on May 17, 1892, leaded by Fray Juan Maria Riera, and that was directly grounded on those undertaken by the Apostolic Prefect Fray Jose Maria Magalli, in 1888, (of which we have no documents) and by the Tufino-Alvarez Scientific Mission in 1912. These elements will allow the updating of knowledge to understand what the Riobamba-Guamote-Macas road represents to us.
On the other hand, our institution pays tribute to all those who, for more than a century, have left us a path of hope.
PRESIDENT OF THE CASA DE LA CULTURA
