Hispanic Heritage Month

Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo

Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo discovered San Diego. While the city annually celebrates and re-enacts the landing of Cabrillo on the shores of San Diego, during the month of October, traditionally we normally only bring to our readers the story of Christopher Columbus. This year we felt that it was about time to bring the story of the discover of San Diego: Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo.

History has preserved only dim outlines of the remarkable career of Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo, who died in 1543 while attempting to complete the first exploration California's coastline.

Though he is generally supposed to have been Portuguese, the evidence is too scanty to be sure. There is no firm agreement about the cause or place of his death, He is variously reported to have used two, three, and even four vessels on his great exploration. Even his name has invited speculation.
