Morro CastleForty years later the village was declared capital of Cuba. Its port became the obligatory arrival place for the european ships in order to supply and defend themselves against pirates and corsairs attacks. From there with their cargo full of gold and silver they sailed to Spain in convoys. The naval transit made possible a succesfull trade, that in a little period of time was favourable for the village, developing its economy more than the others city of the country.
