More about Honduras

History

Historically, the western part of Honduras was under the control of the Maya. In 1502 Christopher Columbus landed on the Caribbean coast, from 1524 the country was settled by Spaniards. These subjugated the local population.

1535-1821 Honduras was part of the Spanish colonial empire and then belonged to the Central American Federation, an amalgamation of the present-day states of Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. After its failure, it became independent in 1838. Afterwards, military coups, civil wars and border conflicts with neighboring states rocked the country. Check computerdo to see Central America Tourism.

After frequent changes of government, the domestic political situation only stabilized under the dictatorship of Tiburcio Carías Andino (* 1876, † 1969; 1932-48), who with the help of the military put down the growing social unrest caused by the workers’ organizations. The following years were marked by short-lived dictatorships and military coups.

In 1969 there was a conflict with the neighboring state of El Salvador, which went down in history as the football war. The dispute escalated after a World Cup qualifier in Mexico City, in which El Salvador beat Honduras 3-2. The causes, however, lay in the problems of Honduran smallholders with Salvadorans, who had emigrated to Honduras by the hundreds of thousands since the 1950s and were cultivating fallow land there. El Salvador invaded Honduras in the wake of the conflict with troops, but was forced to surrender after five days.

After almost ten years of military rule (1972–81), Honduras returned to the parliamentary system of government through the election of President Roberto Suazo Córdova (* 1928; 1982–86).

In 2009, a serious political crisis culminated in a coup in which the social reformist President Manuel Zelaya Rosales (* 1952) was ousted from the military. The head of state has been Juan Orlando Hernández Alvarado (* 1968) from the Partido Nacional since 2014. After a controversial election, he was sworn in for a constitutionally controversial second term in 2018.

Culture

In pre-Columbian times, what is now Honduras was home to the highly developed Mayan civilization. The city of Copán, located near the border with Guatemala, had a population of 25,000 and was one of its most important city-states from 250 to 800 AD. The most famous building is the hieroglyphic staircase, which describes the history of the city on over 2,200 hieroglyphic blocks. In the 9th century, Copán probably went under for economic reasons. The surrounding area had become cleared and barren, the people could no longer be fed. Today the ruins are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a destination for many tourists.

Since the conquest of Honduras by Spanish conquistadors at the beginning of the 16th century, Spanish-European cultural influence has prevailed. The former capital Comayagua, founded in 1537, houses the most important legacy of colonial architecture, the Baroque-style Cathedral of St. Michael. The church of Los Dolores in Tegucigalpa is also noteworthy. It combines Spanish and indigenous influences in its baroque facade.

Only a few Honduran writers became internationally known. They include the novelist Ramón Amaya Amador (* 1916, † 1966) with his politically and socially critical works and the poet Jacobo Cárcamo (* 1914, † 1959). Other important authors are the poet Roberto Sosa (* 1930, † 2011) and the storytellers Julio Escoto (* 1944) and Rigoberto Paredes (* 1948, † 2017).

Folk music also has pre-Columbian features and is played with drums and flutes. The dance pantomime Moros y Christianos (German: Moors and Christians) is of Spanish origin. It commemorates the reconquest of the Iberian Peninsula, which was occupied by the Moors, by Christian armies. The marimba orchestras are particularly popular with senior citizens at village festivals. Current styles include Spanish and English-speaking pop and rock, merengue, salsa, punta rock and reggaeton. Well-known and popular are the punta rock group Banda Blancas and the singer Guillermo Anderson (* 1962, † 2016).
