Willemstad is the capital of the lovely island of Curacao. This historical city, with its center designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is divided into four quarters: the Punda, Otrobanda, Scharloo, and Pietermaai Smal. The name of Curacao is based on the Spanish name City of Giants due to the massive physiques of the Arawak Indians who were the original inhabitants.
