Playa La Galera Juan Griego Juan Griego was founded in 1545 by Captain Juan Griego.
John the Greek, born in Seville Spain in 1541, was navigator and crossed the ocean for the new world. In Margarita,comensio its new business of transporting captives from Indigenous Macanao peninsula to Santo Domingo.
The city began to gain importance in 1811, the first year of the War of Independence of Venezuela, when it was designated as the port and the construction of a battery started to protect military. This battery was named Liberty. For this port entered Venezuela Simon Bolivar back in Haitiin May 1816.
Juan Griego was the site of important events during the war of independence, as the Battle of Fort, which ended with the slaughter of its defenders in Laguna Martyrs, on 8 August 1817 From this year, thanks to recovery of territory for independence army,the small colonial town began to recover from the ruins that had left the army of General Pablo Morillo realistic.



Its importance for the supply of Margarita was such that at some point Morillo strategy to subdue the patriots had been to isolate the city from the capital, La Asunción,and the rest of the population of the island to cut the supply of goods arriving by Juan Griego.
In 1819, the Congress of Angostura established there the Court of Admiralty, which contributed greatly to his recovery. In 1830, when Venezuela seceded from Gran Colombia, a maritime customs was created and its port gained national prestige.
In 1844, St. John the Evangelist Parish was created. Its Gothic church,built in 1850 by Fray Nicolás initiative Equal, is today, along with the bay, symbol of the city.
In 1904, the government of Cipriano Castro moved the office to Pampatar in the south of the island, which the business of Juan Griego suffered a sharp decline. Moreover, in the decade of the 20 th century due to the rise of oil exploitation in Zulia state in western Venezuela, a wave margariteños nourished, especially Juan Griego,He left the island in search of work to go to the people of the coast, from Maracaibo, Zulia state, until Tucupita, State Delta Amacuro.
However, the cultural activity continued to flourish in the small town. In 1932, a group of young Benefactor Society founded the Juan Griego, who welcomed long plays, poetry readings,concerts and other artistic events. Also emerged numerous journalistic initiatives.
In 1973, as consolidated democracy in Venezuela, Margarita island became a free port, and Juan Griego soon regained its place as the second city in importance in business and the number of inhabitants,after Porlamar on the south coast of the island. Investors of Arab origin who settled since this time in the city have given renewed impetus to the local economy and the rest of the state.
Today it is one of the most popular places in Venezuela for travelers and sailors from around the world, and in my opinion the best destination in Margarita.
