Location Information

According to the legend told in the ‘Odyssey’ of Homer, after the Trojan War, a Greek official named Menestheus escaped with his troops through the Straits of Gibraltar and reached the Guadalete River. They established there and the town was called Menestheus's Port.

In 711, Arab (Moors) from North Africa invaded southern Spain. They renamed the place Alicante or Alcanatif which means Port of Salt, due to the old salt industry of Phoenicians and Romans.

In 1260, Alfonso 10TH (X) of Castile conquered the city from the Moors and renamed it ‘Santa Maria del Puerto’. He restructured the land and conceded a charter under the Crown of Castile. In his Cantigas de Santa Maria CSM 367, Alfonso sings that he was miraculously healed of swollen legs after visiting his church of Santa Maria do Porto.

Christopher Columbus's second expedition to the Americas set sail from El Puerto de Santa Maria. His pilot Juan de la Cosa drew his world map in El Puerto in 1500.
