There is a sleepy little tourist town in north east Florida founded in the year 1565 by Pedro Menéndez de Avilés (15 February 1519–17 September 1574) a Spanish admiral and explorer from the region of Asturias, Spain.

There is a dirty little secret in the nation's oldest city that no local may talk about openly with tourists. 1565 is a code word for the amount of bodies hiding all over town. "Tourist Trap", a Bruce Merwin film explores the code word 1565 and what it means to St. Augustine.
