Meaning: to gain importance

En el siglo XVIII, Zihuatanejo cobró importancia como puerto internacional para barcos del Oriente, pero luego los barcos llegaron a otros puertos más importantes y Zihuatanejo quedó como un pueblo pesquero de poca importancia, hasta cobrar vida como destino turístico a mediados del siglo XX. (In the 18th century, Zihuatanejo gained importance as an international port for ships from the Orient, but later the ships docked at other, more important ports and Zihuatanejo became a fishing town of little importance, until coming to life as a tourist destination in the mid-20th century.)
