St Augustine Florida is our Nations Oldest City. We will embark on the past events that made St Augustine what is today. On Easter March 27th 1513 the Spanish Explorer and Treasure Hunter, Ponce de Leon discovered the mainland of the North American continent. He claimed the land for Spain. He named it La Florida that translates to Land of Flowers. St. Augustine is the first permanent European settlement in the New World. The Spanish referred to it as la siempre fiel ciudad "the ever-faithful city".
