The most qualified admiral of Spain, Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles, was named Governor of Florida by King Phillip II of Spain and was ordered to explore and inhabit the area. It was the Feast Day of St. Augustine (Aug. 28, 1565) when he arrived at Florida’s coast, and 11 days later, Menendez and his settlers and soldiers (600 in total) set foot on dry land at the location of Timucuan Indian community of Seloy with trumpets sounding and banners flying. He quickly fortified the fledging community and christened it St. Augustine.

Using skillful military tactics, Menendez annihilated the fort of the French on St. Johns River, as well as crushed the French armada (with the aid of a hurricane). With Florida’s coast securely in the hands of the Spanish, he then began the construction of the town, setting up missions to the Indians for the Church, as well as exploring the region.

Hence, St. Augustine was established 42 years prior to the English settlement at Jamestown, VA and 55 years prior to the landing of the Pilgrims on Massachusetts’ Plymouth Rock, making the town North America’s oldest permanent European colony.

From Spanish settlement to British reign to statehood, the long history and diverse cultural influences of St. Augustine are obvious in its people, streets and structures. The town’s museums and historic sites are excellent locations to learn more about the culture and history of this exceptional town.
