Only 120 kilometers away from Cordoba City, Ongamira is a radiant valley that emerged in the cretaceous period (between 120 and 130 million years ago). With a landscape to admire , these reddish mountains, have forms molded by the force of the winds and the wear of the rain, whose erosion achieved incredible natural sculptures.

It was here that they resisted the arrival of the Spaniards, more precisely on the top of Charalqueta Hill (today called Colchequín) until history gave the final triumph to the conquerors.
