|From 1578 to 1588, Paita was the Spanish capital of the northwestern Peruvian coast, before the permanent attacks of English pirates and corsairs made it necessary to relocate the capital at Piura. The port of Paita is best known to many Peruvians as the former home of Manuela Sáenz, Simón Bolívar's lover.|
