Belmopan City, estimated population 20,000 is the capital of Belize. Belmopan. Belmopan City was constructed just to the east of Belize River, 80 km inland from the former capital, the port of Belize City, after that city's near destruction by Hurricane Hattie in 1961. The government was moved to Belmopan in 1970, and its National Assembly Building is designed to resemble a Pre-Columbian Maya temple. After Hurricane Hattie, with winds of up to 300 kilometres per hour, destroyed approximately 75% of the houses and business places in low-lying and coastal Belize City, the government of the day proposed to encourage and promote the building of a new capital city.
