History[edit | edit source]

  • Originally, the Pokoman people occupied the region in the area currently occupied by the modern department of Chimaltenango. After the Spanish invasion of 1526, the population of Chinautla was founded in the place known as «de la Cruz».
  • When the first Constitution was decreed, it was mentioned that Chinautla had to be part of the district of Guatemala.
  • The municipal capital was the victim of the Guatemala earthquake of February 4, 1976, which forced, due to landslides and destruction, to form a new population, which was to be called "New Chinautla." Two new settlements called "Antigua Chinautla" and "Vieja Chinautla" formed in the original destroyed territory.
