The June 17, 1563, the Spanish captain Jerónimo Luis de Cabrera, founded the Villa de Valverde de Ica. Then, because of several earthquakes and commissioned by Viceroy Conde de Nieva, the city moved to the place now occupied.
The square of Ica is characterized by being surrounded by giant trees of the genus woody "ficus", which makes him give an antique look. During the arrival of the Spanish.
