Image of Inscription Rock at El Morro National Monument

Early Spanish travelers called the questa El Morro, which is Spanish for the headland or the bluff. Subsequent American travelers referred to El Morro as Inscription Rock, but when it came to naming the National Monument in 1906, the earlier Spanish name persevered.
