In 1536 Pedro de Mendoza founded the city of Buenos Aires along the Rio de la Plata river. After five years, the settlers were forced to leave the city exhausted by difficulties and the continuous attacks from the Querandies natives. A few days later that city was burnt and destroyed. About 50 years later, Juan Garay leads a new expedition and the city of Buenos Aires is built again. The challenge is tough as the first time: the resources are meager and the natives not so friendly. Moreover, the Corsairs, paid by the English Crown, menace the Spanish settlement. Will the new settlement manage to survive?
