El Tiple, formerly called "Amor Chiquito" (Little Love) was colonized in the late 1800s. The first inhabitants were located in what is known today as Tiple Abajo. Great families coming from Jamundí, families that until today are conserved as the Saldañas and Los Valencias. Very organized clans, conservative and enclosed in their customs. This made them the only family groups that have kept up to the present day, not only their lands, but also their beliefs, their customs and, above all, their family unity.
