St. Mary, Jamaica


The town of Rio Nuevo has historical significance for being the site of the last battle between the invading English and the defending Spaniards who finally had to flee to Cuba. After the English capture, the area around the town of Puerto Santa Maria became known as St. Mary, and the town itself as Port Maria.
