Image of a map of Mexico, depicting the location of Vera Cruz (on Mexico's southeastern coast).

Once part of the “Spanish Main,” Vera Cruz received treasures from Mexico.  Spanish ships would carry those treasures to Havana where all Spain-bound ships would gather. 

For the best-possible protection - from pirates - the ships would sail, as a convoy, from Havana to Spain.
