San Francisco, "The City by the Bay" covers only 47 square miles (121.4 km ) and has a population of less than 900 thousand, but it ranks as one of the greatest cities in the world. A popular tourist destination, it is known for its cool foggy summers, steep rolling hills, eclectic architecture and landmarks, including the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, the former Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary, Fisherman's Wharf, and its Chinatown district. It was founded in 1776 by colonists from Spain who were sent to establish religious missions in the New World. In 1821 after the Mexican War of Independence against Spain, it became a territory of Mexico until 1846 when it was ceded to the United States. The California Gold Rush of 1849 brought rapid growth, making it the largest city on the West Coast at the time. In 1906 most of the city was destroyed by an earthquake and fire, but it was quickly rebuilt. It was a major port of embarkation for service members during WWII.
