San Diego’s history
Known to be a home to the Kumeyaay people, San Diego was the first site visited by Europeans in 1542, when Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo landed in San Diego Bay and claimed the area for Spain. This even formed the basis for the later settlement of Alta California in the 18 century. After Mexico gained independence in the 1821, area of contemporary San Diego became part of the Mexican territory. The settlement of Alta California started to grow, however by 1838 the number of its residents dropped considerably. In 1850, after California became part of the United States following the Mexican–American War and the admission of California to the union, the town of San Diego was designated the seat of the newly established San Diego County and officially became a city. It developed considerably and in the 20th century, the city was a host of two World’s Fairs. Because of that many Baroque-inspired buildings were erected and although some of them were later demolished due to their bad state few were rebuild. Although some neighborhoods of San Diego were in decline, recent efforts managed to revive them and bring new prosperity to the city.
