The "San Domingo"

National Park Service, GGNRA

Cast in 1628 in Lima, Peru, the San Domingo bears the coat of arms of Don Diego Fernandez de Cordoba, 17th Viceroy of Peru. Though spiked (rendered inoperable) by Fremont's men during the Bear Flag Revolt, the San Domingo was later re-vented.

The San Domingo is located outside of Building 2.

Bee collecting pollen

Over 60 species of bees can be found in the Presidio. This very diverse population results from ample nesting habitats in the Presidio’s soft, sandy soils, as well as a large variety of coastal scrub plants to provide nectar and pollen.
