In the middle of the ruins of Puerto Hermina

Painted Flag of Puerto Rico

On the island of Puerto Rico, as in the rest of the Caribbean islands, piracy flourished during the era of Spanish colonization. Today, the northwestern town of Quebradillas, nicknamed «The Pirate’s Refuge» (La Guarida del Pirata), is most often associated with that period. Along the coast of Quebradillas lie the remains of an old port, which, according to locals, was once a favorite haunt of smugglers and pirates.

Among the ruins of Puerto Hermina (or simply Puerto Mina), the most remarkable is a small stone fortification of the 18th century standing on the coast. In the past, it had a wooden roof, doors and windows, which fell apart over time. The purpose of this fortification is not entirely clear. People say that this is a former military post, but due to its location it could be used as a warehouse or customs.

Some historians suggest that the port of Puerto Hermina, due to its location and inaccessibility, was a smuggling point where many ships called to conduct illegal business with the locals. This means that the port was most likely visited by pirates as well. The cliffs surrounding the bay were the perfect place to stash illegal goods. There is a legend that the most famous Puerto Rican pirate Cofresi was hiding in Puerto Hermina. He was merciful to the needy locals, and in return they supported and protected him.

This small fort was abandoned and forgotten by the end of the 19th century. In 1952, it was remembered again, and today Puerto Hermina is one of the main attractions of Quebradillas. The area offers beautiful views of the coast, and the beaches are popular with fishermen and surfers. Another interesting attraction of the area is the head of an Indian carved into the rocks.

Good to know

The road to Puerto Ermina is narrow and steep, so drive carefully. We recommend visiting this place on weekdays, as on weekends (especially on Sundays) it can be crowded and the number of parking spaces is limited.

The golden age of the Spanish galleons. Treasures of Lost Ships

The golden age of the Spanish galleons

Since the discovery of America by Columbus, a period of active exploration and colonization of South American lands began. The Spanish kings, desperate for funds to maintain their vast empire in Europe and its international prestige, used every means to obtain the fabulous wealth of the New World.

Hundreds of conquistadors rushed to South America in search of wealth and fame. The poor and ragged Spanish soldiers were ready to endure any hardship for the sake of gold, which abounded in the lands of the Incas, Aztecs, Chibcha-Muisca, Olmecs and other peoples.

In 1522, the Spanish government for the first time organized a system of transporting treasures by squadrons under the protection of warships. However, the abundance of valuables being transported attracted so many pirates that the authorities had to seriously think about ways to ensure the safety of the cargo. Since 1526, according to the royal decree, all ships that went to the colonies sailed only as part of an escort.

In 1555, Philip II was alarmed by the sack of Havana by the French. After consulting with the Council of the Indies and the Casa de Contratación, he commissioned Pedro Menendez de Alives to develop recommendations for such cases. De Alives was, unlike many officials, an experienced officer who had led treasure fleets across the ocean more than once in the past. His recommendations formed the basis of the created set of rules for navigation between the mother country and the colonies, published in 1564.

According to the Council of the Indies, treasures were to be placed on guarded and armed galleons to protect them from sea robbers. Warships were supposed to patrol the sea and protect coastal settlements, especially large ones, from attacks. But there were only a few. They were based in Cartagena, Havana and Veracruz. As it turned out later, the costs of maintaining these squadrons turned out to be too large and unbearable for the Spanish treasury, so they were abolished.

As long as Spain lost 1-2 ships a year to pirate attacks, this was considered an acceptable loss. In reality, up to 90% of them died from storms and hurricanes, as well as navigational errors.

From about 1561 to 1748, the Spaniards, with rare exceptions, sent two trade convoys to America. Usually the ships were assembled in the port of San Lucar de Barrameda and subsequently in Cadiz in March and September. Their number had to be at least 10, otherwise they did not receive the right to sail. However, as a rule, they were from 20 to 30, and in some cases much more. For example, in 158994 ships were required to transport goods from Portobello.

The restrictions set by the authorities for transatlantic crossings in fleets were very strict. Ships of less than 100 tons were not allowed to sail to the West Indies. Each ship had to carry at least 4 heavy and 16 light guns on board, and every person who boarded a firearm. The two largest galleons were called Capitana (the ship of the captain-general — the commander of the fleet) and Almiranta (the admiral’s ship — the second flagship of the fleet). They were more heavily armed and carried less cargo, but it was they who were entrusted with the duty of transporting gold and silver, as the most valuable of American goods. To ensure safety, the fleets eventually began to include several small light ships — avisos, whose task was to reconnoiter the route and timely warning of imminent danger.

Every year a fleet departed from Seville and Cadiz to cross the Atlantic. When it reached the Caribbean Sea, it separated.

The New Spain Fleet (Nuevo Espania Fleet) had Mexico as its ultimate goal, sailing past the Antilles and Honduras. Usually the ships reached the port of Veracruz two or three months after leaving Seville. They arrived at the place only in April to be able to collect the treasures mined in the mines in Mexico. They sailed back around February of the following year, as hurricane season begins in the Caribbean from September to January, making navigation in the Gulf of Mexico almost impossible, and stopped in Havana, where they waited for the arrival of the second fleet.

The Mainland Fleet (Tierra Firme Flotta) (after 1648 called Los Galeones) reached Portobello usually in August, its main task was to collect treasure from the mines of Peru and Chile, which were delivered to Panama. Initially, the port to which he followed was Nombre de Dios, but it was extremely inconvenient, so from 1596 the galleons followed to Portobello, which was better protected and had a more spacious bay, and then to Cartagena, where they expected the beginning of January to go to Havana, where he connected with the fleet of New Spain.

The Combined Fleet (better known as the Silver or Gold Fleet due to the nature of its cargo) would then travel together to Spain via the Bahama Strait, using tailwinds and the Gulf Stream. The combined fleet passed along the American coast, then went around Bermuda and then moved towards Spain.

The system created by the Spaniards was not particularly original. Bad weather, bad winds or bad navigation, the danger of pirates or some other misfortune constantly forced the Spanish fleet sent from the mother country to delay in transit. As soon as part of the Mainland fleet arrived in Cartagena, on the territory of present-day Colombia, messengers were immediately sent to all the Spanish settlements of the Pacific coast with the message of the need to collect those valuables that had accumulated in Arica, Antofaghosta, Coquimbo and Valparaiso. All the gold and silver mined in the mines of Chile and Peru was delivered to Lima, from where they were transported to Callao, where the galleons of the South Sea Fleet were already standing, ready to deliver treasures to Panama.

The transfer usually took three weeks. In Panama, heavily laden sacks and chests filled with silver bars and gold coins were loaded onto mules and transported from the Pacific to the Atlantic coast by secret paths. A numerous and well-armed convoy spent approximately 22 days crossing the Darien Isthmus

At the end of the 16th century, the Silver Fleet included up to 60 military and merchant ships. The New Spain fleet had at least two heavily armed galleons, and the Mainland fleet had at least six, since they carried the bulk of the valuables. Later, due to the increased production of silver from the Potosi mines and the increase in the number of sailing ships in the Mainland fleet, it was simply called the Galleon Fleet.

If merchant ships periodically stayed in the Caribbean for the winter, the military sought to leave it as soon as possible, leaving the settlements unprotected. That is why the Spanish authorities had to create a whole system of protection of trade communications. It consisted of the following combat units:

Fleet of New Spain (Armada de Nueva Espana) — escorted galleons from Veracruz to Havana (not to be confused with the merchant fleet of the same name).

South Sea Fleet (Armada del Mag del Sur) — from Peru to Panama.

Fleet for the protection of traffic from the Indies (Armada de la Guardia de la Carrera de las Indias, since 1576). Consisted of 8 galleons, three small ships, 1100 sailors and 1000 soldiers.

Windward Islands Fleet (Armada de Barlovento) — created in 1595 for the permanent protection of settlements and communications in the Caribbean, from Florida to the Lesser Antilles. The main task was to capture pirates and protect merchant fleets.

The High Seas Fleet (Armada del Mar Oceano) is a permanent Atlantic fleet founded in 1590 year. Consisted of 46 warships. Defended the coast and trade convoys from Spain to the Indies.

Fleet de Estrecho (Armada del Estrecho) — based in Cadiz, defended the Strait of Gibraltar and ships arriving from the Indies.
