Where is Cabrillo National Monument?
Commissioned by his native Spain to explore new worlds, the Explorer and explorer Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo entered this piece of Land in 1542, making him the first European to set foot on the west coast of North America. The Cabrillo National Monument, founded in 1913, commemorates the discovery of Point Loma in San Diego.
Short films and explanations by the Rangers provide interesting insights into this story, and the old lighthouse at Point Loma has been restored to show what life looked like here in the 19th century.
