A fascinating history, in 1763, the mainland was named Grenada when the British gained control of the French who had named the country La Grenada. On 7th February 1974, Grenada became a fully independent state. The name originates from Granada given by the Spaniards in the 1520s. When the British regained control, they failed in their attempts to rid the island of French influences imposed since 1649 when the French settled the island. Years on, our islands reveal influences of Amerindian customs, French and English settlement fused with African, East Indian and Caribbean ancestry.
