There, the guard of "Rinconeros" defended the government of Brigadier Estanislao López, once the took tower from the government of Santa Fe, after being deposed of the position Mariano Vera. In July 1819 the "inmortal leader" established the guard of "Rinconeros" in the area of Rincón abajo, today la Guardia hidden by plantation of ceibos in the sector where to the Alassio brothers factory would be located, In that place the watchtower (of quebracho and adobe) was build to guard the entrance to the City.
