The parish of Bilbao, located in the north of Penipe canton (Chimborazo province), in the valley of Chambo, was established on 12 July 1995 (Official Register No. 736). The eruption of volcano Tungurahua (5,023 m) on 5 October 1999 caused  the evacuation of 25,000 people living nearby, the parish of Bilbao included. The volcano has been active since then, with an increase since 2011. The ashes released by the volcano settled down on arable land and make it improper to cultivation for years.
