Item Details

Juan Ponce de León is most famous for his search for the mythical Fountain of Youth, yet the scope of his accomplishments in the New World is much greater. His observations of the Atlantic Ocean's Gulf Stream provided Spanish ships with a swift route to bring treasures home from the Americas, and his exploration of Florida helped established three centuries of control in the region. Learn more about the explorer who is as legendary as the Fountain of Youth he sought.
