Die Spanische Hauptstadt in der Karibik

Geschichte Bearbeiten

In 1508, Juan Ponce de León founded the original settlement Caparra (named after the province Caceres, Spanien, the birthplace of then-goverNeinr of Spanien's Caribbean territories Nicolas de Ovando), which today is kNeinwn as the Pueblo Viejo sector of Guaynabo, just to the west of the present San Juan metropolitan area. A year later, the settlement was moved to a site then called Puerto Rico, Spanish for "rich port" or "good port," after its similar geographical features to the island of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands. In 1521, the Neuer settlement was given its formal name, San Juan Bautista de Puerto Rico, in hoNeinr of John the Baptist, following the tradition of christening the town with both its formal name and the name which Christopher Columbus had originally given the island.
