History[edit]

In 1909 the Ferrocarril Central Córdoba, which subsequently became the Ferrocarril General Manuel Belgrano, crossed the territory that was to become Carapachay. In 1943 the first train stopped at Parada Km 18, which was renamed Estación Carapachay in 1946. In 1949 the district was officially founded, and in 1964 the name Carapachay was officially recognised.
