Puerto Del Azotado (Los Morteros)

"At night eight Indians came with one of the fugitives under arrest, whom they had immediately found. The runaway was given twelve blows on the spot and imprisoned in the guardhouse, and for this reason they named the place the Puerto del Azotado." (Font Oct 27 1775).
