  Pasto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pasto was founded in 1539 by the Spanish conquistador Lorenzo de Aldana under the name "San Juan de Pasto".
Pasto is a reference to the name of the indigenous people who inhabited the place at the arrival of the conquerors, the Pastos.
During the Independence Wars against Spain Pasto was a royalist city unlike the rest of the country, so after gaining independence and because of its geographical location, it remained for long time isolated from the rest of the country which has resulted in the traditionalist attitude and cultural self-absorption of its people.
