Cabrillo National Monument, Point Loma, CA

Cabrillo National Monument, Point Loma, CA is located at the end of a peninsula that is a high point southwest of downtown San Diego, CA. It is believed that in 1542, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, the first European to explore the west coast of the United States, anchored his boat, the San Salvador, near this point.
