Before 1994, Palestina was a set of fields where cattle and crops were raised and people lived in the fields. In 1994 the mayor of Purús Province came to the area to found a town and build homes for any farmers who wished to live there.
The town celebrates some national holidays: Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Labor Day. They celebrate local anniversaries of the town's founding and the church founding, and they celebrate harvest holidays: watermelon planting, caywa planting, watermelon harvest, and rice harvest.
A documentary featuring Palestina, Peru, has been created under the title Web, in cooperation with the Wikimedia Foundation and A Human Right. It describes the impact of the One Laptop per Child program on Palestina, including showing the children in the school writing the initial version of the Spanish-language version of this Wikipedia page. A short segment from this documentary is available on YouTube.
