A colorful house in the historic district of San german in Puerto Rico.
Spanish settlement in the original city of San Germán occurred early in the conquest and colonization of Puerto Rico. After the destruction of a small early settlement near modern-day Anasco during a Taíno uprising which started in February 1511, the new settlement was built at Guayanilla and named after Germaine of Foix, the new queen of King Fernando This town was attacked by French corsairs in August 1528, May 1538 and 1554. The construction of a small fort began on 1540, but work stopped on 1546, when the population of the town began moving inland to the current modern location.
