In 1504 governor Frey Nicholas de Ovando
ordered the foundation of the
city PUERTO PLATA
which today has 130.000 habitants. Cristof Columbus
arrived on the 11th of January of 1493
in the coast, and surprised by
the shining sea he named the city "Puerto Plata"
. He also imported the
sugarcane for the first time by 1493.
Since then the sugarcane has been one of the most important and agronomic
products for the country.
A century later Puerto Plata was destroyed and abandoned in order to stop
the contraband commerce.
In the year 1742
the city was refunded. Since then Puerto Plata changed
to be one of the most important commercial centers of the country, thanks to
its port to export products produced from the cibao area.
