|Named after a famous
15th century Spanish navigator and explorer, the
island has been a French possession since 1897. It has
been exploited for its guano and phosphate.
Presently a small military garrison
oversees a meteorological station. No private notes
of the Juan de Nova Island
have been discovered. Naturally, if there's any activity on the
islands, the Euro is used as a local paper currency.
