Old Port Royal

Port Royal was one of the largest city in English Jamaica during the late 17th and early 18th century. Founded in 1518 by the Spanish, it was captured by England in 1655 during the invasion of Jamaica. In the early days of the Golden Age of Piracy, the port city was notorious as a haven for privateers and pirates, and a place for them to sell their booty. However in 1687, Jamaica passed anti-piracy laws. Consequently, instead of being a safe haven, Port Royal became noted as their place of execution.
