Founded on May 10, 1954; Fontibon was the gate to the current Bogotá City also known as Santa Fe de Bogotá, to the conquistador Gonzalo Jimenez de Quesada and his fellow expeditioners.
The origin of the city's name can be traced to the indigenous leader "Cacique Huintiva" (meaning powerful cacique) and the mutation of the word to its present spelling, being this among other names such as Ontibon and Hontibon.
The city was cradle to the residence of Peter Claver. Little by little the community became one of the most idolizing and religious. The city started to expand, and in the sixteenth century it was divided into 22 "capitanias".
Fontibon's original maps constitute one of Colombia's oldest documents.
In the year 1956, Fontibon was merged with Bogota, losing its status as "associate town".
