About the district

The municipality of Coronel Pringles (23,794 inhabitants in 2001 [23,570 in the town of Colonel Pringles]; 52,570 ha), founded on 24 September 1882 by Provincial Law No. 1497, is located 600 km south of Buenos Aires City.

The town and municipality are named after Colonel Juan Pascual Pringles (1795-1831). After having fought in Peru in the battles of Junín (6 August 1824) and Ayacucho (9 December 1824), the latter ending the spanish colonial rule in South America, Pringles went back to Argentina. As a leader of the Argentine Unitarian Party, he was involved in the Civil War and died in the battle of Chañaral de las Ánimas (10 March 1831), broking his sword and jumping into Rio Quinto to avoid surrendering.
