Description

Orígenes: El 14 de octubre de 1841 se realizaron obras de infraestructura básica en el futuro asentamiento de la Colonia. Una vez terminadas, la empresa colonizadora se dirigió a la antigua ciudad medieval de Endingen de las serranías del Kaiserstuhl para seleccionar a los colonos. Los contratos entre la empresa y los inmigrantes se firmaron en la posada Der Pfauen, ubicada a pocos metros de la puerta de entrada de la ciudad. Finalmente los inmigrantes que se embarcaron para Venezuela sumaban 391 personas: 240 hombres y 151 mujeres, la gran mayoría de ellos del Kaiserstuhl, que partieron el 18 de diciembre de 1842.
Salieron por el Rin, embarcaron en Le Havre el 19 de enero de 1843 y llegaron a la La Guaira el 4 de marzo. Sin embargo, no pudieron desembarcar porque se había declarado una epidemia de viruela a bordo y debieron permanecer en cuarentena en Choroní.
El 31 de marzo desembarcaron, llegando al Palmar del Tuy el 8 de abril de 1843, 112 días después de salir de Baden. Ese día es considerado como día de la fundación de la Colonia Tovar, que tomó como nombre el apellido del donador. Entre los primeros colonos se contaban científicos, naturalistas, escritores y pintores, tales como Karl Ferdinand Appun, Karl Moritz, Anton Goering, Ferdinand Bellerman (pintor que contó con el patrocinio de Humboldt) y muchos otros, gran parte de los cuales están enterrados en el cementerio de la ciudad.
Inicialmente, la Colonia Tovar se organizó alrededor de la producción de café. A medida que «los colonieros» fueron prosperando, la producción se extendió a nuevas tierras y actividades, como el cultivo de legumbres, verduras y frutas, que encontraron buen mercado en Caracas o La Victoria, y luego la fabricación de toneles, aprovechando la calidad de las maderas de la zona.

Origins: The October 14, 1841 were made basic infrastructure in the future settlement of the colony. Once completed, the settlement enterprise went to the old medieval city of Endingen of the Kaiserstuhl hills to select the settlers. The contracts between the company and the immigrants were signed in Der Pfauen inn, located a few meters from the entrance of the city. Finally, immigrants who sailed to Venezuela amounted to 391 people: 240 men and 151 women, most of them from the Kaiserstuhl, which departed on 18 December 1842.
They went down the Rhine, sailed from Le Havre on 19 January 1843 and arrived in La Guaira on March 4. However, they could not disembark because they had declared an epidemic of smallpox on board and had to be quarantined in Choroní.
On March 31 landed and arrived at the Palmar del Tuy on April 8, 1843, 112 days after leaving Baden. That day is considered the foundation day of Colonia Tovar, who took the name of the donor. Among the first settlers there were scientists, naturalists, writers and painters, such as Karl Ferdinand Appun, Karl Moritz, Anton Goering, Ferdinand Bellerman (painter that was sponsored by Humboldt) and many others, most of whom are buried in the city cemetery.
Initially, the village was organized around the production of coffee. As "the Coloniero" were booming, production spread to new lands and activities such as growing vegetables, fruit and vegetables, they found good market in Caracas and La Victoria, then the manufacture of barrels, using quality timber in the area.
