I’ve followed my same European rules for Centro Historico. This tour is for first timers, with a limited time frame. 1531: The official founding of Mazatlan but the city’s current location wasn’t inhabited until the late 18th century. The area was full of swamps and lacked drinking water. It was previously known as San Juan Bautista de Mazatlan, which now is Villa Union. 1700’s: The discovery of gold and silver in the Sierra Madre mountains initiated the foundation of mining cities like El Rosario, Concordia and Panuco. The wealth attracted many immigrants . 1810: Mexico gained independence as a country, on September 16. 1817: Mazatlan becomes the main export route for gold and silver from mining cities nearby. These shiny new objects attracted foreign immigrants to settle in Mazatlan.
1828: The Martime customs building is constructed in Mazatlan and the first American consulate opens its doors. 1847 -1848: Mexico was invaded by the U. 1830: The Filipino banker, Don Juan Nepomuceno Machado, arrived in Mazatlan and began trading with far-flung places such as The Philippines, Asia, Chile, Peru, Europe, and the US. With his financial success in Mazatlan he built and donated the Plazuela Machado. Machado also paid for the construction of the San Jose church, which was Mazatlan’s first religious building. Its construction started in 1837 and finished in 1842. 1859-1873: Mazatlan was the capital of Sinaloa. Around this period, the Germans landed bringing their Bavarian music, which is where Mazatlan got its banda bands from, and of course, the German staple, beer.
Mazatlan had no beer and the Germans taught them all about brewing and they began producing the delicious Pacifico beer. Some historians claim the Germans with their skills and capital, shaped our port and made Mazatlan a prosperous city. Literally, put it on the map. 1871: The last invasion of Mazatlan and Mexico was from England. 1883: 2,500 people died of yellow fever, including the famous opera singer, Angela Peralta. 1902-1903: Mazatlan was hit by the bubonic plague and no one knew it was a plague. It wasn’t until a local doctor Martiniano Carvajal, quarantined those infected and then burned the houses of plague victims that the disease was conquered. In honour of his work, you can find a bust in the park in front of the Museo de Arte. Internal revolts, upheavals and battles for political power crisscrossed the entire country. 1922: One of the first English documented evidence of tourism in Mazatlan.
Nor can pretty girls have a more dainty setting. Don’t leave home before 10 a. When you stroll through Centro Historico you’ll notice Mazatlan architecture is a portrait of Spanish, German, French and the British influences. During your time here you’ll see how warmly the hard working Mexicans treat visitors. You may encounter street beggars, they appear in various disguises: showing maimed limbs, sitting on street curbs, or often it’s a pretty eight year old girl selling flowers, and gum. You may also be asked to give to local re-hab centres. The city and business owners look after all these poor people in their own way. As a matter of fact they can be any color or covered with advertising. The words stay the same: SABALO CENTRO, coming or going. The bus will let you off in front of the market.
