san juan de ulua fortress Featured 30 Dec 2015 Print

san juan de ulua fortress

San Juan de UlA?a fortress, also known as Castle of San Juan de UlA?a, is a large complex of fortresses, prisons and one former palace on an island of the same name in the Gulf of Mexico overlooking the seaport of Veracruz, Mexico.
The fortress complex was ultimately closed when no longer needed for sea defense. After several years of decay, renovation was begun on the complex in the late 20th century. Some projects are continuing. San Juan de UlA?a has been preserved and adapted as a museum. The prisons and the fortresses are all open to the public, with the exception of the former presidential palace, which suffered severe decay and is still undergoing renovations. The complex is a very popular tourist attraction

Jalpan Mission in Sierra Gorda Featured 30 Dec 2015 Print

Jalpan Mission in Sierra Gorda

Although the mission in Jalpan was established before JunA?pero Serraa??s 1750 arrival into the region, Serra is given credit for building the five main missions of this area and completing the evangelization of the local people.
In reality, the missions were built by Pame hands, under the direction of various Franciscan monks including JosA© Antonio de MurguA?a in ConcA?, Juan Crispi in Tilaco, Juan Ramos de Lora in Tancoyol and Miguel de la Campa in Landa.
However, the vision for the building of the missions was Serraa??s, as he imagined a type of utopia based on Franciscan principles. Serra insisted that the missionaries learn the local languages and experience hunger along with the rest of the population. There was still hostility to the Spanish presence, and Serraa??s response was economic as well as spiritual.
The main feature of these churches is the ornate decoration of the main portals, although there is decoration on the bell towers and in some churches, other areas as well
