Historia del Cerro de las Pavas

¡Oh Cerro de Las Pavas!, más antiguo que el pueblo que a tu vera se acuna, sin más noticia de que fuiste formado en la era Cenozoica, en la Colonia ya tenías caminos a tu lomo y al menos tu nombre se decía. El bosque antiguo del cerro que muchos siglos antes albergó a las gallináceas aves que originaron su nombre "Cushutepec"; proporcionó las maderas para levantar en 1612 y 1690 los templos de San Juan y San Sebastián; y destruida la arboleda las aves huyeron del sitio para no volver más. En 1905, el Consejo Munipal presidido por el Señor Alcalde Don Buenaventura Nuila, acordó empezar "arreglar la calle del cerro que parte la iglesia de San José y comprar la casa de la Señora Julia Amaya de Fuentes para mejorar el ornato y la alineación de la calle". El 14 de diciembre de 1949, con motivo del Primer Aniversario de la Revolución, fueron inauguradas las obras que en el Cerro de las Pavas construyeron la Junta Nacional de Turismo. Lainez, Jorge B.

History of Cerro de la Pavas
Oh, Cerro de Las Pavas! Older than the people that your side is cradled, with no more news that you were formed in the Cenozoic era, during the colonization you already had in your back roads and at least your name was called. The old forest in hill that many centuries before housed gallinaceous birds that originated its name "Cushutepec"; provided for the wood to build up in 1612 and 1690 the temples of San Juan and San Sebastian; and once the trees were destroyed, the birds fled the site never to return. In 1905, the Municipal Council headed by the Lord Mayor Don Buenaventura Nuila, agreed to start "fixing hill street starting from the Church of San Jose and to buy the house of Mrs. Julia Amaya Fuentes to improve the beautification and alignment street". In December 14 of 1949, to mark the first anniversary of the revolution, were inaugurated the works built by the National Tourist Board on the Cerro de las Pavas.
