Inca is the capital of the latinian province with the same name. The city with 521 608 inhabitants was founded 1507 as a fort in the northeast of Latina (Ciudad) on a strategic important hill between the valleys of the Rio Norte and the Rio Oriente. For this prominent place the fort was named "Incalculable" - meaning no price too hight. People say "Inca" in the same manner as for "dinosauros" only was sayed "dino".

King Fernando III of Castellán gave the order to build this castle, to shelter Latina (Ciudad) in the northeast against the indigene tribes in the valleys of Rio Norte and Rio Oriente. The king itself 1510 visits the colony of Latina, stays 3 month in Latina, some days in Cordoba for the university and then he was some weeks in Inca to visit the works at the fortification.

Til the 1840ies Inca was only a smaller town in the walls of his fortress. With the railway from Latina (Ciudad) to Givullion the town begun to grow. Since 1820 the town spread out to the north and as here the railway-station was buildt here was the new point of urbanisation. Beginning 1830 and 1640, the town made the first steps over the old fortifications. Since 1831 this walls and ditches are changed to a park for the town. In the 1860ies the area of Veinte Fresnos (Twenty ashes) was changed from a glacis with grass and shrubs to an upper-class quarter, reachable with the first horse-streetcar of Inca.

Transportation of Inca

The city lays near the motorway # 5 from Latina (Ciudad) to Givullion. National-roads ## 54 and 74 runs through the town. Before the motorway was opened, the national-road # 5 run directly through the town (now secondary-road # 119).

The AVE-hi-speed railway line # 5 Latina - Givullion stops in Inca. The Cercania-line # 106 gives a fast connection to the city of Latina (Ciudad), which is 60 km away and line # 126 leads to the both airports of Latina and Saguset and to the city of Saguset.

Inca has a streetcar-net of 13 lines, numbered from 1 to 12 and 14. First horsetram was opened from the railway-station around the city 1869 and the first electric streetcar runs 1896 on the route of line # 9. Line # 12 today is a circle-line. Line # 14 has its number because her way runs partly parallel with line # 4.


Inca is divided in 19 suburbs, named "barrios". Postal Code is always 180x or 181x and the number of the suburb (always 4 numerals 1801 to 1819). Government and greater organisations have postalcodes from 1821 to maximal 1859.

Like in Latina (Cidudad) always for some barrios are local courts in service - so in Inca there are local courts for always four or five suburbs in the center, north, south and east.
