Quick Fact About Barbados
Did you know that the name "Barbados" actually comes from the "Bearded Fig Tree" which was once found all over the island?
When the Portuguese first spotted the island of Barbados back in 1536 while en route to Brazil, they referred to it as "Lost Barbados" which means the "Bearded Ones" in Portuguese.
There are still some Bearded Fig Trees in Barbados, but they’re found in small gullies in certain areas of the country. They’re not as abundant as they were when the Portuguese first found the island. Have you been able to see them in your travels?
