Cabrilho

And going back a bit one other thing I need to mention: Cabrilho was a Portuguese Sailor & Navigator, whose services the Spanish Court contracted to survey the coast of what is today's San Diego.

If you go across the Coronado Bridge visit the top of the Park with his name, you will find a statue, at the top of the hill. That was a gift from Portugal and it has the correct spelling of his name on it.

During the 50's, the President signed an order picking today's spelling.
