On 28th October 1492, Admiral Christopher Columbus arrived at the island of Cuba, which he named "Juana" in honour of Prince Juan, firstborn son of the Spanish monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella. He subsequently altered this name to that of "Fernandina"; a decision which was confirmed by a Royal Decree in February 1515. In spite of this, our island has been known by its original Indian name, "Cuba", since the first moments of its conquest by Spain.
