As your local Jacksonville, FL Porsche dealer, we know there is a lot of fun activities to do in our hometown and throughout our state. One of our favorite places to visit is St. Augustine. We love the city’s activities and attractions, and we also have a fondness for St. Augustine’s storied history. That’s why we thought it would be fun to share some of the lesser known facts about one of our favorite cities.
You may already know that St. Augustine was founded by Spanish conquistador, Pedro Menendez de Aviles, on September 8, 1565 and that he named the city in honor of his hometown’s patron saint. But, did you know that the feast day for this patron saint fell on the day that Menendez de Aviles sighted shore before making landfall?
Since the city was founded more than 450 years ago, St. Augustine has become the oldest continually inhabited settlement established by Europeans in the United States.
While we know St. Augustine has a lot to offer, including its rich history, we also know that our Porsche dealership has a lot to offer fans of the Porsche brand.
