  1. This is a replica of the ship that sailed from Barra de Navidad, Jalisco, Mexico in June 1542 and discover what is now the Ports of San Diego, San Pedro (Los Angeles) by the portuguese seaman and explorer Capt. Juan Rodrigues Cabrillo, being the first european to set foot in the U.S West Coast, way before the pilgrims in the ship Mayflower in the U.S East Coast in 1620.

  2. So interesting to see as our family (originally from Central America now in California) are direct descendants of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo via his oldest son Juan Cabrillo de Medrano who was a child living in now Guatemala when Cabrillo died in California.
