Can anyone explain to me how come a small village in small island in the middle of a huge ocean could generate enough resources to build something like this at the start of the XX-th Century?

Officially… sugar cane, rum and cochinilla beetle… but still… today they are no more than 35 000 people… God knows how many were living in the area at that time…

A remarkable feat!
