Overview

He explored Puerto Rico, and claimed Florida for the King of Spain. He was among the greatest of the many adventurers who crossed the Atlantic in the sixteenth century. Juan Ponce de Leon's life story is a tale of danger and discovery, victory and defeat. In this one man, an entire world came together, a world of bold conquest marred by tragedy. Ponce de Leon sailed the seas, fought Muslims and Indians, and founded some of the first settlements in the Americas. In the end, he died as he had lived-caught up in the events that marked the point of contact between the Old World and the New.
