Description

Stanley is a brightly-colored seaport nestled in a sheltered harbor on the east side of East Falkland, the largest of the Falkland Islands. The Falkland Islands are also known as Islas Malvinas. Stanley is the capital of the Falkland Islands. The Falklands are a quiet archipelago of exposed rocky islands in the South Atlantic Ocean. Now known for their fisheries and tourism, the islands came to the attention of the world in 1983 when Argentina sent armed troops to claim the islands and England's military response lead to Argentina's defeat and withdrawal. The inhabitants are now British citizens, although, by Argentine law, they can claim Argentine citizenship.
