Jamaica’s Port Royal: The wickedest city on Earth? | BBC Travel

Port Royal has been known as “the wickedest city on Earth” with its rich history of trade in the late 17th century. However, it experienced a massive earthquake that destroyed and sank much of the city. “It is believed to be one of the best-conserved underwater heritage sites in this hemisphere,” said Selvenious Walters, an archaeologist. Today, the Jamaican community looks forward as the port opens with a project slogan, “Honouring the Past, Visioning the Future” with the promise of cruise ships on the horizon in 2021 and many more visitors expected to become acquainted with its fascinating story.
