A Brief History
Ensenada, Baja California, the western shore of Baja California, Mexico, is an enigma that still has so many mysteries. Ensnada, previously named Ensenadas de Todos Sanches, coastal town, western Baja California province (state), Mexico. The city is located on the Todos Sanches bay of the Pacific Ocean, in the area known as Ensenate.
Ensenada was a major fishing port in the Mexican Pacific Coast, and as this was the location from where the Spanish colonizers who were still settling Baja left their own mark. The city, which was established by the 15th century, was among many outposts along the coast of Baja by Spanish conquistadors. Its original name, Todossenos, means”at the place where the Spanish used to fish”. A very long time after the coming of Spanish and after they’d set settlements, Ensenada was integrated to the city of San Miguel de Allende, which had been established on the same shore.
Ensenada was the place where the first Spanish missions were constructed, and it’s said that the majority of the settlers and missionaries that were leaving Baja came here. They founded the Church of San Francisco de Asis, the church still exists today, but it was also incorporated to the city of San Miguel de Allende, in which it still remains. A number of the first inhabitants of Ensenada have passed away, and people who live there now are of another ethnic group in the original settlers. The people living in the tiny cities today are descendants of what the residents were when they abandoned Baja. The small towns in Ensenada have various dialects, which has helped the place have been identified with various kinds of classes.
Over the years, individuals from other parts of Mexico, particularly Central America, have moved into Baja, taking advantage of the fishing and tourist industry as well as the relatively lower cost of living, among other reasons. Since the 1960’s, Ensnada has experienced a increase in its crime rate, though the crime rate remains relatively low.
Ensenada, however, is a part of modern history that’s still being composed. Ensenada historians aren’t as interested in the background of previous inhabitants since they are from the present and they are not so interested in the background of the current. Their interest lies in the current and the future of Ensenada.
The people of Ensenada managed to live the Spanish conquistadors and their arrival in their town because they heard from the Spanish and they have also managed to adapt to the cultures of different cultures. Even now, the people of Ensenada are very proud of their heritage and have made an effort to maintain their culture despite different kinds of influences that have come to be in their lives through recent years. They have managed to construct a sense of pride and identity in their hometown despite their diverse backgrounds.
