你知道在美国最古老且一直有人居住的城市,位于佛罗里达州吗?156598日,蒙尼德兹 〈Pedro Menéndez de Avilés〉在现在被称为玛坦萨斯湾的海岸登陆,随即着手创建圣.奥古斯汀城,后来的移民者才将其改名为佛罗里达 州,奥古斯丁。这个城市建筑在古老美洲原住民的村庄上,离欧洲人在1513年寻找传说中 青春之泉,在佛州登陆上岸的地方不远。这个城市自从兴建之后,一直有人居住至今。

Did you know that the oldest continually occupied city in the United States is in the state of Florida? On September 8, 1565, Pedro Menéndez de Avilés landed on the shore of what is now called Matanzas Bay and began the founding of the Presidio of San Agustin. Later the settlement would be called St. Augustine, Florida. Built on the site of an ancient Native American village, and near the place where Ponce de Leon, the European discoverer of Florida, landed in 1513 in search of the legendary Fountain of Youth, it has been continually inhabited since its founding.
