Santa Cruz de la Sierra

'''Santa Cruz de la Sierra''' (

The city was first founded in 1561 by Spanish explorer Ñuflo de Chavez about east of its current location, and was moved several times until it was finally established on the Pirai River in the late 16th century. For much of its history, Santa Cruz was mostly a small outpost town, and even after Bolivia gained its independence in 1825, there was little attention from the authorities or the population in general to settle the region. It was not until after World War II and profound agrarian and land reforms that the city began to grow at a very fast pace.

Nowadays, the city is Bolivia's most populous, and the Department of Santa Cruz (Department of santa cruz), ranked second in total population (Departments of Bolivia), produces nearly 35% of Bolivia's gross domestic product (GDP), and receives over 40% of all foreign direct investment in the country. This has helped make Santa Cruz the most important business center in Bolivia and the preferred destination of migrants from all over the country.
