General Note:
During Christopher Columbus's second voyage to the New World, he landed on the North coast of Jamaica on May 5, 1494 and called the area Santa Gloria. In 1503 during his fourth and final voyage, Columbus and his men were marooned in Jamaica. After his shipwreck, Columbus lived in Maima, a Taino (or Arawaks) Indian settlement near Seville for over a year. The Taino Indians were Jamaica’s first native people. The area is now part of the Maima-Seville Heritage Park, owned and operated by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust. The image shows the remains of walls at an excavation site.
