CROSS OF CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS © 2002Cuba
“I have never seen a more beautiful place… this island is truly the most beautiful land human eyes have ever beheld.” – Christopher ColumbusWhile we were in the small village of Baracoa we visited the beach where Christopher Columbus landed and placed a cross into the sand declaring the island for Spain. As I stood in the same place where the man who changed the history of the western world had stood eons ago, I was overwhelmed with awe. So much has happened since Columbus landed, I wonder what he would think. The village of Baracoa is the first town to be created in Cuba. It was established in 1511 by Diego Velazquez and was Cuba’s capital until 1515.
