Learn About Culebra History

Culebra was founded by Cayetano Escudero Sanz on October 27, 1880. This first settlement was called San Ildefonso, to honor the Bishop of Toledo, San Ildefonso de la Culebra. Culebra (or "Snake") island is also known as "Isla Chiquita" (Small Island) and "Ultima Virgen" (last virgin) due to its position at the end of the Virgin Islands archipelago. Two years later, on September 25, 1882, construction of the Culebrita Lighthouse began. It was completed on February 25, 1886 which made it the oldest operating lighthouse in the Caribbean until 1975, when the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard finally closed the facility.
