History


The Cross for Ica was instituted by the Spanish Kingdom to reward the Peruvian royal troops who defeated the Chilean and Peruvian revolutionary forces at the Battle of Ica in 1822.

The Cross was conferred upon military personnel who belonged to the Battalions Real Infante Don Carlos, Cantabria, and Imperial Alexandro, among other military units.

The Cross features an obverse inscription that translates to "Battle of Yca," and a reverse inscription that translates to "Year of 1822."
