Corpus Christi Map
The city was named Corpus Christi by the Spanish in honor of the Lord’s supper, but Corpus Christi was founded in 1839 by Colonel Henry Lawrence Kinney, who built a Ranch and Trading Post on the Gulf Coast and sold equipment and food to the Mexican army.
Today Corpus Christi is one of the most important cities of Texas and is home to the sixth largest port in the USA. In addition to the oil-processing industries, tourism is one of the main sources of income thanks to its location directly on the Gulf of Mexico. And so it is not surprising that the tourism industry has invented the epithet “Sparkling City by the Sea” for Corpus Christi. And indeed, the Skyline at dusk and night hours is well worth seeing and can be viewed from different sides around Corpus Christi Bay.
