The Spanish monarch Charles III decided that California should become part of the Crown, as rumors arrived that rival European powers were settling their royalties in the Pacific Northwest of America, and it was vital to establish a position to protect the rich Viceroyalty of New Spain.
That is why the “Portolá Expedition” was launched in 1769, which would establish a line of Franciscan convents from San Diego to Monterrey as a way of populating this new territory, and claiming it for Spain. During this expedition, the Franciscan father Juan Crespí transmitted us the first reference to the wells of La Brea:
“As we crossed the basin, the explorers reported seeing tar geysers coming out of the ground as springs. They reported that they had seen many of these springs and large swamps of it enough, they said, to caulk many ships. We were not so fortunate to see those geysers, although we wished they were some distance from the road we were to take and the Governor [Portolá] did not want us to go. We baptized them as The Volcanoes of Brea. "
In 1781 the Town of Our Lady of Los Angeles de la Porciúncula was founded in the vicinity of the geysers reported by Crespí, which today is the city of Los Angeles. When the Spanish colony ended, in 1828 the Mayor of Los Angeles, José Antonio Carrillo, made the concession of a property in La Brea for Antonio José Rocha and Nemesio Rodríguez. The Rocha family would found Rancho La Brea. As had always been the case, the inhabitants of the town had the right to use the tar from the property.
The population of the common swift (apus apus) has fallen here (in Spain) by 20% in the last 20 years due to the proliferation of feral cats, animals that, on the contrary, do not stop growing and are protected by a large number of citizens.
