Prodigiuos weaver`s land and the place where the poncho salteño was born, it is believed that the name of this small settlement comes from the old way the river Brealito was called: the Seclantá stream.
In the year 1814 this lands became the meeting point of those who formed the Vallista Board that helped Belgrano in its withdrawal to Tucumán, after the defeats of Vilcapugio and Ayohuma, during the war of independence.
