Quilmes is a district made up by these areas: Barrio Parque, Quilmes, West Quilmes, Bernal, West Bernal, Don Bosco, Ezpeleta, West Ezpeleta, San Francisco Solano, and Villa La Florida.
Quilmes is located in Southern Greater Buenos Aires, 17 km away from the City of Buenos Aires.
The main city of the area of Quilmes in the South of Buenos Aires, was declared as such on August 1716. The name Quilmes comes from the original population of the area, the Quilmes Tribe, which were subjugated by colonialist who later founded the town. In 1812 the Quilmes Tribe was declared free and the land auctioned.
The origins of the Quilmes Tribe is unknown, but inhabited the lands long before the arrival of Colombus. The fortress city that they constructed in the Calchaquíes Valleys, Salta, is still intact and still captures the attention of researchers and tourists.
The Quilmes were a "Nación Diagita" that came from the Cuyo area and emigrated to the Calchaquies Valley, where they were dominated or conquered by the Incas, and then became part of the Incan tribe. Their language was the Cacan, respected by the Incas and destroyed by the European. None the less, there are still a few Cacan words used today like "Charco" (puddle), a place with little water, and "Chivito" (little goat), refering to a person that jumps and runs a lot.
Before the Spanish conquering, the Quilmes Nation had resisted intents to dominate them for 130 years. During all of this time, the Spanish tried in vain to make them submissive. But what the enemies can't achieve with guns, the friends can do with treason, and that was how the neighboring Indian tribes stopped providing them with food leaving them with no other option that to give up.
The Spanish, as punishment for their resistance, take away all their lands in the year 1665. They then occupied the lands of the Calchaqui valley (today Los Pasos, Rincon de Quilmes, Quilmes, El bañado, Talapaso, and Colalao del Valle, all located in the Tucuman province), and from there the Spanish made them walk all the way to the Rio de la Plata riverside. Here, in 1666, 2400 men lost on the way, the area now known as Quilmes was founded, between the streets Zapiola and Guido, the river, and the limits with San Vicente.
The City fortress that they had constructed in the Calchaquíes valley, in Salta, is still kept intact, and is a common destination both for investigators and for tourists.
