Hello, greetings to all, I am going to talk to you about Cumanà turned 506 years old yesterday, it should be a great pride for the entire country of Venezuela, for being in this country, (worth the redundancy) but also for the entire American continent It is the first-born city .
Founded by the Dominican and Franciscan friars on November 27, 1515. Those who arrive on the mainland celebrate the Thanksgiving Mass to celebrate the Eucharist. (The First Mass celebrated in Cumanà and the American Continent).
It is the beginning of the Catholic Christian Doctrine and the founding policy that spread throughout the American Continent.
In chronicles of Fray Bartolomé De Las Casas, he tells us that the friars under the command of Fray Pedro de Córdoba chose the place to begin the evangelizing and peaceful conquest of the mainland of America.
Fray Bartolomé also says that the Dominicans and Franciscans founded Cumanà from the shore of the beach to the mouth of the Cumanà river.
Cumaná, is the cradle of the Great Marshal of Ayacucho Antonio José de Sucre y Alcalá, winner of the Battle of Ayacucho, with it he consolidated Independence in America
Cumaná cradle of poets and writers such as the Maestro Andrés Eloy Blanco, famous for among many of his poems Angelitos Negros.
Cumaná land where joy reigns, where the fulias, the galeron, the popular cultists maintained the traditions such as the popular Don Luis Mariano Rivera, author of melodies such as: La Guacara. Cerecita, interpreted by Gualberto Ibarreto, also from Sucre.
Cumaná land that sheltered eminent people like Dr. Luis Daniel Beauperthuy who discovered the vaccine against yellow fever.
Despite all these benevolences, Cumanà today would define it as a battered city, a city that in colloquial terms we could say has no mourners, it is not justified that its FIFTY-SIXTH anniversary has passed without pain or glory. With indolent rulers who have not been able to dignify their their city. Seeing the tragedy that the Cuman people are experiencing is something unusual because it is a tragedy to live without the conditions that human beings need, waiting for a governor or mayor to change with the hope that now yes, I say we must change but we, in my In case I do not need someone to send me, I need a manager to administer and take care of keeping the city clean, that the services work, which are his attributions. As a citizen, I must comply with myself and we must all do the same with our conscience, returning to the present way to the future.
I would like to see Cumanà in its 507 years as the Cludad Mariscala. The most beautiful and traditional city of the American Continent, Mi Cumanà. Oh Cumanà, whoever saw you and walked through your streets and San Francisco out of mass at dawn ...
