California State Historic Landmark 821
#821 Morro Rock
An important mariner's navigational landfall for over 200 years. Chronicled in the diaries of Portola, Fr. Crespi, and Costanso in 1769 when they camped near this area on their trek to find Monterey. Sometimes called the "Gibraltar of the Pacific", it is the last in the famous chain of nine peaks which start in the city of San Luis Obispo.
Located in city park, foot of Morro Rock, on Embarcadero Rd, 0.4 mi NW of Morro Bay.
Return to other landmarks in San Luis Obispo county.
