History: Its name comes from the historical Chapel of the Rosary, which is on a street with the same name, the one that starts on the Tomás Godoy Cruz Street, and extends itself from the north to the south until the Los Guindos Street.
This chapel was built around the year 1830, by the order of the Priest Gabriel Bejarano. This native priest of Bolivia, studied in Mendoza and Córdoba, exerted his ministry in this province. He had the Chapel and a house for Spiritual Exercises constructed, in the locality of Acéquias de Gomez, property of the Videla family. When the buildings were inaugurated, he prophesied that it would be a Quarter of Soldiers, a house of exercises and finally Noah’s Arc, where innocent doves would find their only refuge in the middle of the misfortune whereupon God would threaten humanity, but that would also corrupt humankind more every day. The soldiers of Rosas were lodged some time in the chapel; soon it was destined to be a Parish and House of Religious Exercises. In addition, the nuns of the Company of Maria were lodged there.
