Among other signs of its importance, the city is home to industrial enterprises in the country, so also is known as the country's industrial capital. This city is flanked by the Sierra del Merendon, and is located in the southwest corner of the vast and fertile Sula Valley, a region that generates about 50 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) and 60 percent of exports of the nation. San Pedro Sula was founded on June 27, 1536, under the name of San Pedro de Puerto Caballos by Spanish conquistador Pedro de Alvarado. Initially, the town was established in the indigenous people of Tholoma, north of the present city and very close to Puerto Cortés.1 Because of this proximity to the port, the town of San Pedro, was the victim of attacks and looting by European pirates landing on the puerto.2 for this reason, the Spanish authorities were forced to relocate the town in more than one occasion.
