Cubagua, one of three islands that comprise the Nueva Esparta state, begins to revive.

This land dry and dressed hundreds of cacti and thorns, are resuming after the bridle in the year 1541 a hurricane devastated. In this island want to take the submissive silence that was submerged 468 years ago.

This territory of about 9.2 kilometers long and 3.6 kilometers wide and belongs to the municipality Tubores today, is inhabited by 20 families of fishermen, people who see this little island a land full of grace, that despite its drought and few services are full of goodness that have harbored for years.

Cubagua is full of memories, as reflected in the ruins of Nueva Cadiz, the first city of the Spanish. As the story goes, was discovered by Christopher Columbus on his third voyage, in 1498.

In 1979 was declared a historical monument, marked by its cultural value, being the first city in Spain's urban new continent. Big rocks are now visible in the ruins now called Archaeological Park, Paleontology and Geology, rescued in the area working on the Cultural Heritage Institute (CPI), whose plans are aimed at making Cubagua a tourist attraction par excellence.

In the approximately two thousand square meters of ruins, we see part of what was the first Spanish cities in America. It had a church, courthouse, buildings, homes, convents and inland roads which are still perceive traces. To this surface displays how was New Cadiz, now a younger daughter of the island region.

There are still walls about 50 cm high, with the same stones that were built more than four years. Part of that metropolis was restored by José María Cruxent and John Goggin, during the 1950s.

De lo real a lo imaginario
During the tour of the ruins of Nueva Cadiz, visitors can see how that population was in 1498.

Gabriela Alvarado, director of the park, explained that the island was declared a Forest Reserve on 29 April 1943, and 140,700 according to Official Gazette on 19 July 2007 was declared a cultural interest, according to the Official Gazette number 36,996. It is from that date when the CPI begins to raise ideas on how to rescue Cubagua Island.

"There are many myths about this island, some say there was a tsunami and why it sank, others that the city was at sea level and in a city such waves subsided. But to date no one knows what really happened. That still in research. "

IPC President, José Manuel Fernandez, a few days ago said the aim of restoring this place is to become an attraction of the island region for residents and tourists to know the history of the emergence of Nueva Cadiz and also to change a little concept of tourism. "Tourism is not just the beaches and shopping, take into account the cultural centers. According to Fernandez, there are architectural ruins under the sea and said in their recovery work, as only found pieces of the time on the surface.

Directions to park

To know the park there are two ways. First, go directly into the second boat and walking five miles from the Bay of Charagato to the park. The journey is long, but interesting, because we know the essence of the islet. The trip must be for the rest of the old road to avoid damaging the rest of the city of Nueva Cadiz.

The paths of two meters in width will be identified with wooden fences that will put the CPI so that visitors know data on the smallest of the islands in the insular region.
