English - Spanish Battle site 1658

This is the Rio Nuevo Battle Site Historical Park - near Ocho Rios. We went there on Monday, Feb. 21st - The English beat the Spanish and took over Jamaica because of this battle! There were a few artifacts in the small museum that were interesting. The Spanish fort consisted of many young Mexican boys - some who never held a gun before. The Spanish fled to Cuba and the English developed the island.


  1. Poor little boys!! Interesting history though!!

  2. I just found your blog through Heather's! I absolutely love being able to see all the pictures & read all the stories. Absolutely love this. Love you guys!
