Agana Spanish Bridge
Just 44 years after Magellan stopped by in 1521 during his around-the-world voyage, the Chamorro people discovered they were now subjects of Spain
. The jungle isn’t kind to civilization, though, so today one of the oldest remnants of this colonization is the Spanish bridge, built in 1800. Across from the Chamorro Village, it’s a reminder of just how long the Chamorro have been dealing with being colonized, and yet have retained their own culture—underneath the bridge is a statue commemorating a local mermaid legend.
