The small inlet sheltered by the two rocks that give the town its name allowed small boats to operate in it since the 16th century. In the 19th century, the Los Roques pier was already consolidated as an important coastal port, an importance that it would maintain until well into the 20th century. It allowed both the entry and exit of goods and people, assuming a better alternative to the old Camino Real, the only land transport route existing at that time between Fasnia, Santa Cruz and other towns until the arrival of the General Southern Highway in the 1900s. . The agricultural production of the municipal term and the stone slabs obtained from its quarries were shipped through Los Roques, importing all the necessary products for the consumption of the inhabitants of the municipal term through Los Roques.
