At first it was a rural part of the canton Colta. Then Pallatanga was cantonized in 1986. It was also the hold of incaic high born families until the 17th century. Later it was an Indian worker town in the early 1900s. The greatest achievement of the village was being the center of telegraphic communication between the capital Quito and the port city of Guayaquil for nearly 30 years. The work of several men such as Emilio Torres who arranged the telegraph cables in the wilderness was very important for this achievement. (en)
