 Under orders from King Phillip II of Spain more than 450 years ago, Conquistador Don Tristan de Luna sailed into the beautiful waters surrounding what is now Pensacola, Florida. He claimed the land he found in the name of Spain, and Pensacola became the first European settlement in the United States. The DeLuna Landing Ceremony is a light-hearted parody of what might have happened with Don Tristan de Luna landed on Pensacola Beach.
