So ‘Americana’. Let us out of here!
The next morning, we find the cutest little town that has its roots back in the 16 century when the Spanish first colonised this part of the US.
Britain had done a deal with Spain giving them title to Florida in exchange for their taking over Cuba.
During the mid-1560s, the Spanish Empire expanded from its Caribbean strongholds northward, to what is Florida today. The first colony which was founded and remained continuously occupied was St. Augustine. Spanish settlers began immediately to establish a Catholic church.
The old buildings of St Augustine now house ice cream shops, souvenirs, restaurants, bars and so much else. But retains the colonial traces everywhere.
