The 10 Most Important Things to Do in Puerto del Rosario
The capital in the northeast was founded around 1800. Back then it had the name Puerto de Cabras (goat harbor). The city became increasingly important as the port became a significant hub for goods produced on the island. After all, the “Goatharbor” got the largest city on the island and was consequently declared capital. Until 1957, the city bore its somewhat disrespectful name. Later it was renamed Puerto del Rosario, which can be translated as port of the Rosary Madonna.
