Photo 365-Day 132 “San Juan de Ulua”

San Juan de Ulua

Located in Veracruz state in Mexico, San Juan de Ulua is a series of fortresses and prisons, and even has a palace. San Juan de Ulua served as one of the “gateways in the Americas” where African slaves were imported. The structure serves as a museum today. A highly recommended tourist site. I learned a lot about Mexican history, and this was the first time I heard about the importation of Black slaves in Mexico. You can even take a tour of the site if you’re Spanish is up for it. The state of Veracruz is a great place in Mexico to learn more about Black history in Mexico.
