The Lost Treasure of Saint Augustine


Ever heard about the Lost Treasure of Saint Augustine?

Many of the ships that sailed around Matanzas Bay and the Old City of St Augustine throughout the centuries were filled with priceless treasures including chests of gold, extravagant ancient jewelry and other antiquities. Due to a variety of different circumstances, i.e. pirates and war (during the Colonial period of St Augustine, the city was under the rule of several European countries), and hurricanes (Florida’s coastline is notoriously plagued by hurricanes and sea storms) several “treasure chests” were lost and never recovered.
