The lighthouse has the distinction of being settled in what was formerly an island and has a length of 641 meters by 321 meters wide and a height of 157 meters, making it the highest natural lighthouse in the world. In 1821, the City of Mazatlan is by decree of the Cortes of Cadiz certified as the first port of height of the Mexican Pacific. Made of relevance that opens doors to international trade. The above decision coupled with the rapid growth of large mining and commercial consortia, results in that ship traffic intensified. In those days it was not uncommon reached the port each year over 60 ships from Europe and the Far East, loaded with different types of merchandise. Boats that after several days of travel and supplies, departed to their ports of origin loaded with bars of gold and silver from the rich mines of the region. However at that time, the port of Mazatlan each passing day had more port traffic inexplicably incredibly over a period of seven years did not exist any signage that would allow marine's located and zooming the port with due accuracy without it meant endangering their boats. It was in 1828, when the island of Creston start using marine signaling. There chronicles indicate that in the early sixties, the facilities were on top of the imposing hill were very modest, only a small temple masonry, on which torches and bonfires fed wood and coal, producing a dim lit light that could only be distinguished within walking distance. This situation improved over the years, to start oil lamps and kerosene, which already allowed an intense and penetrating more fixed light used. Over the years he built a small tower in which a lamp English manufacture gas fed installed and producing a light through one of the Fresnel lens special type, its technical characteristics allowed the generation of a light more intense and therefore is easier to give a better service to navigation since being distinguishable quite a distance, approaches were made with greater precision.

Band Sinaloense The Band Sinaloense or Tambora is a type of musical ensemble, traditional and popular musical genre, which is culturally established in the early twenties in the state of Sinaloa, northwestern region of Mexico. It is a genus of Europeans to organological European style Fanfare remaining, however, like many other ensembles traditional wind in Mexico, performs a varied musical forms, repertoire that dominate traditional sones, rancheras, corridos, polkas, waltzes, mazurkas, chotis, all tailored to the sensitivity of the inhabitants of this Mexican region; music as well as popular romantic ballad and cumbia. thumb Example of a Sinaloa band in early 1900. (File:Band´s Sinaloa.jpg) The unique sound of the Sinaloa band is very similar to the bands German and French wind, which is the difference in running musical bands Sinaloa north-central and south of this state. In the north central area, the musical phrasing is lighter and nuanced, most western European style and in the south, the style has a very strong phrasing and a little less nuanced performance, more influenced by the Bavarian style German, which made several researchers, their origin be located in these regions, especially considering foreign intervention in the state and in Mazatlan early in the century it was inhabited mostly by German (Germans) immigrants. However, the Swiss ethnomusicologist Helena Simonett explains that the first sinaloenses bands formed by people who deserted the military bands and the municipal and went to live in the mountain villages, adding credence to the Sinaloa founders, with the rhythmic influence Mayo-Yoreme have contributed to its esencia.15 Nevertheless, there is an historic agreement, which puts the musical influence dates before mazatlán German trade boom (1870-1890), as it not only would be the distribution of instruments through marketing, but was also required a cultural disclosure that could only happen in a close relationship between the carriers of such traditions and the people of the region, and this circumstance only occurred in Mazatlan. That is why the theory of French and Spanish influence on the German influence in other regions of Sinaloa, is reinforced as the development of the music of Sinaloa drum has records and previous history in distant places in the mountains of Sinaloa where there was no influence Germany, however, did post-war French influence intervention and Spanish cultural remnants. Well as evidence of the formation of the first organological Mazatlan clusters and clusters of other Sinaloa, for example: La Banda El Recodo de Cruz Lizarraga 1938 that had a strong German influence in his playing style, which included his instumentación stringed instruments, in contrast with La Banda Los Tacuichamona 1888, La Banda Los Sirolas Culiacan (1920) and The Band of Brothers Rubio (1929) Mocorito, which were exclusively instrumental integration of wind instruments and percussion to Galo style -Ibérico fanfare, as well as execution.
