Los Patios is a municipality in Norte de Santander Department.
The history of this community begins in the 17th century. It
began as the hacienda "Los Patios", which
developed into a small country town, which later became a corregimiento
de Villa del Rosario and still later, on 10 December 1985,
the 37th municipality of Norte de Santander. According to
historical records, the proprietors of the original hacienda
included Juan Aranda, Carlos Matamoros, and Reinaldo Viccini, who
engaged in agriculture, principally of cacao.
The flag of Los Patios is horizontally divided white-green-yellow.
