1999 (9:00 mins) Island Topics #18 HISTORY
This video is a brief tour of what was once the administrative center of Pohnpei. Javier Galvan, a Spanish architect and historian, leads us through the Spanish Wall, erected at the beginning of Spanish rule in 1887. Within the colony enclosed by the Wall were troops barracks, a governor's palace, an infirmary, and other public buildings. Senor Galvan points out where these buildings were located and shows us what relics of this period of colonial history of Pohnpei remain besides the Wall.
