It was not until the collapse of [[Alexandria]] and later [[Caputia]] that hundreds of thousands of stateless settlers and developers from both nations came to settle, develop, and populate the city of Punta Santiago as we know it today. Several historical buildings are in Punta Santiago; among the most notable are the city's former defensive forts like the Citadel. Other notable buildings include the Sacre-Coeur Cathedral, the Executive Mansion, the Government Mansion, and the prestigious Hotel du Babkha.
