That is how, in July 1998, once the ecclesiastical, administrative and technical consultations were made, the determination was made to start this project, work that involved the effort of the entire local community, and where many people were involved in the development of the same. The place chosen for the construction of the structure was the peak of Cerro El Vigía, located at 159 meters above sea level.
