The Jungle Prada Site and Anderson/Narvaez Tocobaga Indian Mound
The Jungle Prada Site is on the National Register of Historic Places. This important archaeological site was an ancient Tocobaga Indian village at the time of the first European contact in Florida. Today, the Jungle Prada site features the best-preserved American Indian mound in the Tampa Bay area. Learn about the lives of the Tocobaga Indians on our guided tour of the Jungle Prada Site and Anderson/Narvaez Tocobaga Indian Mound. Family-owned since 1940, this hidden oasis features a beautiful Florida-friendly garden full of native plants that were used by the Tocobaga including coontie, yaupon holly, sea grapes, buttonwood, muscadine grapes, and many more. Over 50 free roaming peacocks call these gardens home. The Jungle Prada site is also thought to be the landing site of Spanish conquistadors Panfilo de Narvaez and Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca. Learn the amazing story of Cabeza de Vaca, who journeyed from Florida all the way to the Pacific Ocean between 1528 and 1536.
