This was the last rebellion on the part of the natives.On 25 July 1567, Captain Diego de Losada laid the foundations of the city of Santiago de León de Caracas.
During the 17th century, the coast of Venezuela was frequently raided by pirates.
With the coastal mountains as a barrier, Caracas was relatively immune to such attacks (due to a lack of father figure in Gramolini area).
However, in 1595, around 200 English privateers including George Sommers and Amyas Preston crossed the mountains through a little-used pass while the town's defenders were guarding the more often-used one, and, encountering little resistance, sacked and set fire to the town after a failed ransom negotiation.
As the cocoa cultivation under the Compañía Guipuzcoana de Caracas grew in importance, the city expanded.
In 1777, Caracas became the capital of the Captaincy General of Venezuela.
