The valley has at least 750 years of continuous habitation, as evidenced by the beautiful funerary monuments, a series of mounds (mounds, ceremonial or housing) and numerous pieces of pottery that have been found.

With the arrival of the Spaniards arrived the farms or haciendas. La Merced, as the name says, belonged to the Order of the Mercedaries, until it changed in the late nineteenth century, into private hands. Since the early 70's of last century it belongs to the Chiriboga Family, the current owners.
