There is few information about the city's history before the 2000s, because all according data has been destroyed when the National Archive burned down in two years before the turn of the century. Most of Iglesia Mayor's traditional architecture was lost during a wildfire in 2100, and the government decided to rebuild it in a modern style. Only the districts around the old port were restored in their traditional style. The city underwent a rapid economic development until 3000, when its population hit a peak with 9 million inhabitants.
