About Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands and their encompassing waters structure the Galapagos Province of Ecuador, the Galapagos National Park, and the Galapagos Marine Reserve. The key language on the islands is Spanish. The islands have a populace of somewhat over 25,000. The principal recorded visit to the islands occurred by chance in 1535, when Fray Tomas de Berlanga, the Bishop of Panama, was amazed with this unfamiliar land during a voyage to Peru to mediate in a contest between Francisco Pizarro and Diego de Almagro. De Berlanga in the end came back to the Spanish Empire and portrayed the states of the islands and the creatures that possessed them.

The principal unrefined guide of the islands was made in 1684 by the marauder Ambrose Cowley, who named the individual islands after a portion of his individual privateers or after British eminence and aristocrats. These names were utilized in the definitive route graphs of the islands arranged during the Beagle review under chief Robert FitzRoy, and in Darwin's well-known book The Voyage of the Beagle. The new Republic of Ecuador took the islands from Spanish proprietorship in 1832, and in this way gave them official Spanish names. The more seasoned names stayed being used in English-language distributions, including Herman Melville's The Encantadas of 1854.
