“The Greek”

La GriegaLa comunidad de La Griega, se formó a partir del establecimiento de la hacienda asentada allí, la cual inicialmente se llama Telayupa. Posteriormente en el año de 1801, y debido a que la hacienda sufría inundaciones por encontrarse cerca del paso del agua tuvo que trasladarse al lugar donde actualmente se encuentra el casco. Una vez reestablecida la hacienda se determinó darle el nombre de Y GRIEGA, debido a su ubicación cercana a las calles con esta forma. Cuenta con 4181 habitantes, y está constituida como una de las 3 delegaciones del municipio de El Marqués.

English translation:
La GriegaThe community of La Griega (The Greek) was formed from the establishment of a hacienda created near here, which was initially called Telayupa. Later, in 1801, and because the hacienda suffered from flooding because it was close to the water, the town had to be moved to this, its current location. Once the hacienda was reestablished, it was determined to give it the name Y GRIEGA (the letter 'y'), due to its location close to the streets that form a 'y' (or a fork in the road). It has 4181 inhabitants, and is constituted as one of the three delegations of the municipality of El Marqués.
