City of Veracruz | The Port

Next to my face there’s a Spanish ruin called San Juan de Ulua which it’s a popular destination for its’ rich history. The fortress was built in 1565. Later it became a prison in the 19th- early 20th century.

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard the word “Veracruz” in your lifetime maybe when you took that World History class or maybe because you’ve wanted to go there.

Anyways, I’m here to tell you that one of Veracruz’s port had many ships that had to be in maintenance or they were too old and they were stuck there for the rest of their oxidized lives . Apparently Hernan Cortes, Juan de Grijalva, and Bernal Diaz del Castillo were the first Spanish conquistadors that came to Veracruz to seek: gold, precious stones, and land.

One recommendation: if you ever go, you’ll probably see people getting into port’s water but what they don’t know it’s high in toxins because all of the trash that people have thrown. There’s another part of the city which it’s cleaner from all the port’s toxins located in Blvd Manuel Avila Camacho.
