Antigua Barbuda

Estimate population 87,950 - Capital: Saint John's

 

Rich in history, Antigua and Barbuda are fascinating places. Antigua was named after a Spanish church in Seville, by Christopher Columbus in 1493. The island however was colonized in the 1600's by English settlers, who decided to grow tobacco but some years later they found that sugarcane was a more profitable crop, and slaves (who by the way, were emancipated in 1834) were brought to the islands to work on the sugarcane estates.
