If you don’t know Alcatraz, then you’re in for quite a shock. Alcatraz Island, also called The Rock, occupies an area of 9 hectares, or 22 acres. It is located 2km off the shore of San Francisco, and it is one of the world’s most maximum-security prisons. When it was first explored in 1775, the island had almost no vegetation and was a habitat for seabirds. Lieutenant Juan Manuel de Ayala named it Isla de los Alcatraces, which means ‘Isle of the Pelicans’
