Head of the department of the same name, concentrates administrative functions and of services of a wide and rich region of agroindustrial base that has been worth him the name of "the empire of the south."

In November of 1786 the Governor Rafael of Sobremonte founds the "Villa of the Concepción of the Rio Cuarto " that gave place to the current town, headquarters from the Command of Frontier to the control of the general Fotheringham and from where the general Julio A. Roca planned the Campaign to the Desert.

Once finished the occupation of the pampas, its incorporation to the national economy was favored by the one spread of the brunch Villa María-Rio Cuarto of the Andean railroad (1873).

The original city had quick growth and it saved the barrier of the river in 1911 with the construction of the bridge cartwright.

The city presents today a profile urban town of buildings in height that will surprise him; in her it will find all the services that it can need, as well as intense cultural and night life.
