San Pedro Sula

, after the capital Tegucigalpa. It is the capital of the Cortés Department. Early years thumb left San Pedro Sula Cathedral (File:San Pedro Sula Cathedral.jpg) San Pedro Sula was founded on 27 June 1536, by Pedro de Alvarado under the name '''Villa de San Pedro de Puerto Caballos''', close to the town of Choloma. There were around 18 towns populated by indigenous people in the Sula valley at the time. Early descriptions of the landscape indicate abundant swampland and dense tropical forests, with little land good for agriculture or cattle raising. The city's name became San Pedro Sula in the 18th century, after several changes. The "Sula" part of its name comes from the ''Minas de Sula'', gold mines located to the west of the village of Naco. thumb right Panoramic view of Downtown San Pedro Sula (File:Panoramica san pedro sula.jpg) For the first few years of its history, San Pedro was the colonial mint, where gold, found to the west in the Naco, Sula, and Quimistán valleys, had to be brought to smelt, and where the Spanish Crown collected a fifth of the value of the gold. The mint was moved to Gracias, and ultimately to Comayagua in the 1550s. French, English, and Dutch pirates (Piracy) raided and sacked the city, prompting the Spaniards to move the city to its current location along the Chamelecón River. San Pedro languished to a neglected backwater, with few Spanish settlers. New settlers were not attracted to the city, preferring the higher, drier valleys inland with more farmland and gold mines. At the same time, lax Spanish control spurred illicit trade in alcohol from the Caribbean islands, such as Cuba.
