Acapulco occupies an important place in the history of Mexico, having been during the viceroyalty the port of America to Asia. Here came the Nao de China, which actually departed from Manila and the Philippine Islands to link two worlds and unite two ends of the Pacific Sea. The precious silks of the East and spices came from the hand of merchants who contributed to the formation of a cosmopolitan city.
The Nao of China, also called the Manila galleon, culturally enriched this beautiful port, as merchants from all over the continent came here to buy oriental goods, such as silks, porcelains and spices, and sometimes they stayed to live in this famous place.
