Info on Campeche


Campeche (Ahk'ìin Pech in Modern Maya) is a city and municipality of Mexico located at 19.85° N 90.53° W, on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico. The city's population at the 2005 census was 211,671 people. The municipality for which it serves as municipal seat had a population of 238,850.
The city was founded in 1540 by Spanish conquistadores as San Francisco de Campeche atop the pre-existing Maya city of Canpech or Kimpech. The Pre-Columbian city was described as having 3,000 houses and various monuments, of which little trace remains.
The city retains many of the old colonial Spanish city walls and fortifications which protected the city (not always successfully) from pirates and buccaneers. The state of preservation and quality of its architecture earned it the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999. Originally, the Spaniards lived inside the walled city, while the natives lived in the surrounding barrios of San Francisco, Guadalupe and San Román. These barrios still retain their original churches;
City fortifications
Entrance to bulwark San PedroDue to the constant attacks of both English and Dutch buccaneers and pirates such as Francis Drake, John Hawkins, Laurens de Graff, Kornelius Jols, Jacobo Jackson, Jean Lafitte, Francisco de Grammont, Bartolomé Portugués, William Parker, Francisco Nau, Edward Mansvelt, Henry Morgan, Lewis Scott, Roche Braziliano and Michel de Grammont for almost 160 years, in 1686 the government started to fortify the city.
The French engineer Louis Bouchard de Becour was commissioned to unify all the defensive works that surrounded the city with a wall. At its completion, the wall surrounding the city of Campeche was 2,560 meters in length, forming an irregular hexagon around the main part of the city, with eight defensive bastions on the corners. These bulwarks now serve different functions:
Santiago: Used as the Botanical Garden 'Xmuch´haltún'. Reconstructed.
San Pedro: Former prison.
San Francisco: Protects the Land Gate. Houses the library of the INAH.
San Juan: Protects the Land Gate.
Santa Rosa:
San Carlos: Holds the City Museum. This fort was the first one built. Protects the Sea Gate.
Nuestra Señora de la Soledad: Also protects the Sea Gate. It is the largest one and holds the Museum of City History.
It also contained four gates to allow access to the main quarters. The main entrances are the Puerta de la tierra ("Land Gate"), built in 1732, and the Puerta del mar ("Sea Gate"). The Land Gate is kept as a tourist attraction, having a light and sound show three nights each week and keeping original supplies and items from the XVII century. The other gates were Guadalupe and San Román, connecting to the outside neighborhoods.
Additionally, two main forts protected the city from two nearby hills on each side, the forts of San José el Alto (built in 1762) and San Miguel. These forts gave long-range artillery coverage and served also as look-outs. They were built before the walls of the city. The fort of San Miguel is used as a museum and houses a collection of pre-Hispanic items. The fort of San José houses a collection of boats and weapons of the period.
History
Campeche was the principal port of Yucatán until the mid-19th century, when it was overtaken by Sisal, and then Progreso. It was historically the second largest and most important city in the Peninsula (after Mérida) until the end of the 20th century and the increased development in Quintana Roo.
A burial ground in Campeche, discovered in 2006, suggests African slaves had been brought there not long after Hernán Cortés completed the subjugation of Aztec and Mayan Mexico. The graveyard had been in use from about 1550 to the late 1600s [1].
In the 1840s Campeche had a population of about 21,000.

Campeche City
The beautiful City of Campeche was founded in the 16th Century, 1540 to be exact, although a settlement had been here since 1517. If you love history, culture, architecture, great weather in the winter and access to wonderful places like Mayan cities, almost untouched rivers and beaches, you will love Campeche City.
The city was formally founded in 1540 by Don Francisco de Montejo who gave the settlement the name of San Francisco de Campeche. The area had been called Kim Pech by the Mayan natives who dominated this region for centuries. The state is home to the largest concentration of Mayan ruins in the world with fantastic Mayan cities like Edzná and Calakmul.
In Campeche city you will find examples of 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th century architecture. In 1999, the city was designated a World Cultural Heritage site by the United Nations UNESCO. The criteria taken in consideration for this designation were:
The port city of Campeche is a model of the city planning of a baroque colonial city with regular and reticular traces. Its planning, a model of the port cities of the viceroyalty years, shows the important role it played as a commercial, military and religious meeting point, characterised by its high level of integrity and homogeneity. More than a thousand buildings of historical value have survived as witnesses of how space and time were superimposed in the various important historical stages in Mexico since the XVI century.
The forts in Campeche are an outstanding example of military architecture of the XVII and XVIII centuries as well as being the basis of the complete defence system implemented by Spain in the Caribbean to protect its colonies from Pirate attacks.
Today, Campeche City is a beautiful destination with hotels that go from the modest hostel for the backpacker adventurer to luxurious hacienda style hotels and modern business oriented establishments with all the services one may require for a fabulous stay during our unforgiving winters. Campeche City, is a sister city to Halifax, Nova Scotia (caid mille failte). Temperatures in Campeche state from December to March hover around highs of 25 to 30 degrees centigrade with lows of 14 to 18 at night.
Consider Campeche for your next winter vacation. You will be pleasantly surprised (however, if you are looking for beach and beer with Cancun like development, this is not the place). In addition to the great places to see in the City of Campeche you can begin side trips from here to the various Mayan cities like Edzná (half a day) o Calakmul (two or three day trip). You can also visit various beaches close to the city, such as Playa Bonita, Sihoplaya or Seybaplaya.
Enjoy.
Campeche is located on the southeast part of the peninsula and has an area of 56,114-sq. km. (21,665-sq. mi.) including two islands. It is bounded on the north and northeast by Yucatan, on the east by Quintana Roo and Belize, on the south by Guatemala, on the southwest by Tabasco, and on the west and northwest by the Gulf of Mexico.
Campeche was founded around the third century and used to be the principal town of the Mayan district Ah Kin Pech which means "serpent tick".
On March 22, 1517 soldiers lead by Francisco de Montejo invaded Champoton but were defeated by Mayan warriors led by the legendary Moch Couoh. Seriously wounded, Cordova died of his wounds. The battleground where this took place came to be known as "Bay of the Bad Fight" and is to this day.
In 1527 and 1537 further attempts to conquer the area failed led by Commander Francisco de Mentejo and his son. In 1540 Montejo's son returned better equipped and armed to massacre their way into the Mayan homeland. Successfull, they finally conquered Kin Pech and Acanul. In 1541 he founded the Villa de San Fransisco de Campeche then went on to attack Tenabo, Helcelchakan and Calkini.
Campeche became a lucrative port for the area and once the bulk of precious metals were removed, captured slaves became the chief commodity. All traces of Mayan religious beliefs were systematically wiped out and replaced by Christian beliefs. Practicing the Mayan faith was punishable by death.
Once the slave trade was organized and prospering, the conquistadors turned to new avenues of wealth.
The Spanish discovered a dye in logwood, which grew in the forests near Campeche. This dye was considered a rare commodity and was highly prized in Europe and brought high prices on the European market.
When news spread that this dye was available in Campeche, it attracted the attention of others seeking to capitalize on this rich export. In time a ruthless group of Caribbean pirates and thieves sought to profit from this valuable commodity by controlling the market for the dye. As a result, the city was attacked and looted on many occasions from 1597 to 1685.
Also because of the ceaseless number of wars fought between Spain, Portugal, England, France and Holland, Campeche became a target for repeated attacks. In 1663 a flotilla of pirate ships launched a united front and assaulted the city, massacring many of its inhabitants. Such was the destruction and looting that the King of Spain was forced to act. Starting in 1668 thick rampart measuring 3.5 meters in thickness were erected. After 20 years of construction a 2.5 km hexagon wall was built encircling the city with strategically positioned baluarts along the wall. A section of the ramparts extended into the sea so that ships had to sail into a guarded fortress to dock. Cannons could now be easily moved to any side of the city as well as men and ammunitions. Campeche was now a fortress city.
As hostilities waned and the industrial revolution came, the walls fortifying Campeche were dismantled and used as cobblestones to pave the roads. Windmills dotted the city pumping water to its inhabitants.
Today the windmills are gone but the fortress baluarts are still intact along with short sections of the wall. There are still a number of upper-class Spanish mansions, churches and other colonial buildings still standing which serve as the city's chief attractions.
Campeche
More than ever, visitors to Merida and the surrounding Mayan ruins are leaving a day or two in their schedule to visit the colonial city of Campeche. It is located about a two-hour drive from Merida. The town is full of history and romance, with a beautifully renovated Centro Historico.
Campeche used to be the principal town of the Mayan province of Ah Kin Pech, which means "serpent tick" and which was founded around the 3rd century A.D. It was fairly unknown to the Western world until, on March 22, 1517, Spanish soldiers commanded by Francisco Hernandez de Cordova reached the village of Kin Pech to replenish their water supply. Afraid of being attacked by the native population, they quickly left. A few days later the Europeans en-countered a storm at sea, causing them to land in Champoton (40 miles south of the city of Campeche). Here, their fears were fulfilled, as they were attacked by native troops led by Moch Couoh. The triumph of the Mayan forces over the Spaniards was obvious. Hernandez de Cordova was so badly wounded that he died of his wounds a few days later. The bay near the battleground at Champoton where this happened has been called 'the bay of the bad fight' ever since.

In 1527 Commander Francisco de Montejo failed to enter the land of the Campechanos, and his son, trying some years later, was also unsuccessful. In 1537 Francisco de Montejo the Younger returned to Champoton and again there was fighting between the Mayas and the conquistadors.
On December 24, 1540 Montejo the Younger arrived in Champoton, this time determined to conquer. He eventually won the fight, and on the 4th of October 1541 Francisco Montejo founded the Villa de San Francisco de Campeche. Later he also defeated the nearby Mayan towns of Tenabo, Hecelchakan and Calkini.

malecon looking back at Campeche.
A visit to Campeche will give young and old alike a glimpse of what life was like in the time of pirates. For years after Montejo's triumph, this town was pummeled by pirate attacks. The spirits of those pirates still seem to be hanging around here. At the height of the pirate attacks (and probably the reason for them), Campeche had become one of the main ports of New Spain, exporting many Yucatecan products.
Much energy was expended building battlements to defend the city. As a result, local inhabitants endured constant tension of wars, conflicts and alliances between England, France, Holland, Spain and Portugal. The unfortunate result was that they were prevented from taking advantage of any economic boom due to their port location, spending all their energy constantly refortifying their city.
San Carlos Bulwark
One of the first fortifications ever built, this one was named for Carlos II, King of Spain. In 1766, the fort confronted approaching enemies on the vulnerable side of the city with 12 cannons.
The San Carlos Bulwark still contains the rooms used for the guards and the prison; visitors can also view the supply storeroom. The Bulwark hosts the very excellent City museum, where you can learn about the role the forts played in the history of Campeche, and you can see the Key to the City, an important symbol for the city of Campeche.
Museum hours: Tuesday to Saturday from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM and Sunday from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
Land Gate
The inland gate was built in 1732 and is one of the main symbols of Campeche. Almost all of its original elements have been preserved, such as gun placements, gunpowder stores, and loopholes. Three roads exit the inland gate. Two pass by the Guadalupe and San Roman forts, the third one goes to the Santa Ana neighborhood with its beautiful estates. A light and sound show is held at 7:00pm on Autum and Winter and at 8:00pm during Spring and Summer.
Gate Hours: Tuesday to Saturday, from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM and from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM, Sunday from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM. For more information go to the tourist office next to the Cathedral on the main square.
The Fort of San Miguel
In addition to the wall surrounding Campeche, the city was also protected by an outer defense system, making Campeche one of the best-defended cities at the end of the 18th century. One of these outer forts is called San Miguel.
Today it houses the Campeche Regional Museum, where you can find an exhibition of pre-Hispanic and colonial pieces.
Hours: Monday to Saturday, from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM and Sunday from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
The Fort of San Mguel el Alto
This is a second fort that was part of the outer defense system. In 1762 when there was a lull in the pirate attacks, this fort was built to protect the Campechan port against the greatest naval power on earth: England. Today the fort hosts a nice exposition of "Boats and Arms". Museum hours: Tuesday to Sunday from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM.
La Casa 6
This completely renovated 18th century house of beautiful Moorish architectural design is situated on the main square. Inside, you will find antique furniture, dating from the end of the 19th century.
A tour through the house takes around 15 minutes and the entrance is free. Hours: Monday to Sunday from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
Santiago Bulwark
This reconstructed wall is now home to a small botanical garden containing more than two hundred plant species. Visitors can see beautiful examples of the Ceiba, Campeachy wood and Balche trees that are significant in the region. Hours: Tuesday to Saturday , from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM.
Nuestra Señora de la Soledad
This bulwark was built around 1690 and is one of the biggest of the Campeche defensive system. It was used to protect the nearby Puerta del Mar. In 1766 this site had thirteen canons, two stores, an arms room, two corridors and two rooms where the artillery was kept. Now it hosts the Stella Museum, which has an exceptional collection of Mayan sculpture. Museum hours: Tuesday to Saturday, from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, Sunday from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
Travel Tip!
If you want an easy way to see the forts, take a trip with the Tran Via El Guapo which leaves the central square every Tuesday to Sunday.

En Espanol


Campeche
Campeche solía ser la ciudad principal de la provincia maya de Ah Kin Pech. Can Pech se fundó en el siglo III de nuestra era. El 22 de Marzo de 1517 exploradores encabezados por Francisco Hernández de Córdova llegaron a Kin Pech a reabastecerse de agua. Se fueron pronto por miedo a ser atacados por los nativos. Días después, los españoles fueron obligados a desembarcar en Champotón (65 KM al sur de Campeche) por una tormenta y fueron atacados por tropas mayas comandadas por Moch Couoh.
El triunfo de los mayas sobre los españoles fue obvio. Hernández de Córdova fue herido tan gravemente que murió días más tarde. El lugar donde se llevó a cabo la batalla en Champotón ha sido llamado la “Bahía de la mala pelea” desde entonces.
En 1527 el comandante Francisco de Montejo falló al entrar a tierras campechanas y lo mismo le pasó años después a su hijo en Kin Pech. En 1537 Francisco de Montejo, hijo, regreso a Champotón y nuevamente hubo batallas entre mayas y conquistadores. El 24 de diciembre de 1540, Montejo llegó a Champotón, esta vez decidido a conquistarla, para después conquistar Kin Pech y Acanul en donde el 4 de Octubre de 1541 Francisco de Montejo fundó la Villa de San Francisco de Campeche, más adelante también conquistó Tenabo, Hecelchakan y Calkiní.
Para todos aquellos que todavía piensan que deberían haber nacido hace algunos cientos de años, en los tiempos en que los piratas conquistaban lugares lejanos batalla tras batalla… es, definitivamente una buena idea visitar la Ciudad de Campeche. Desde 1557 esta Ciudad fue ensombrecida por ataques piratas, para entonces, Campeche se había convertido en uno de los puertos más importantes de la Nueva España, canalizando un gran número de productos yucatecos. Las construcciones hechas para defender la Ciudad y los habitantes no fueron capaces de soportar la constante tensión de las guerras, conflictos y alianzas entre Inglaterra, Francia y Holanda con España y Portugal. Como resultado de esta situación, los campechanos fueron privados de las ventajas de su desarrollo económico y acabaron por amurallar la ciudad. La construcción comenzó en 1685 y concluyó en 1704.
¿Qué hacer?
La bella cuidad de Campeche ofrece a sus visitantes varias cosas que hacer y tiene algo para todos. También funciona perfectamente como base para explorar las áreas cercanas: sitios arqueológicos, playas y mucho más. La lista de actividades que está escrita debajo es un plan de como podría ser tu estancia en la ciudad amurallada.

Lugares de Interés
Fuerte de San Carlos
Este fuerte, el primero que se construyó en Campeche, fue nombrado por el Rey de España, el Rey Carlos II.

Fuerte de San Miguel
Además del muro alrededor de Campeche, la ciudad fue protegida por un sistema de defensa mas afuera. Este detalle hizo que Campeche fue una de las ciudades mas protegidas al final del siglo 18. Hoy en día, el Museo Regional de Campeche se encuentra aquí. Hay una exhibición interesante de piezas pre-hispanos y coloniales. Abierto lunes a sábado de 8 AM a 8 PM.
Fuerte de San José el Alto
El segundo fuerte del sistema de defensa de afuera es el Fuerte de San José el Alto.
