Welcome to The Royal Order of Ponce de Leon Conquistadors Florida Website!
The Royal Order of Ponce de Leon Conquistadors is an organization dedicated to the preservation of the Spanish heritage of Charlotte County and Florida by honoring Ponce de Leon for discovering and naming Florida and for landing in Charlotte Harbor, which he named for King Carlos of Spain, inspiring cultural and historical roots within our community.
We are proud of Punta Gorda's history. We raised funds to erect the monument at Gilchrist Park to commemorate and to celebrate Ponce DeLeon's landing.
ROPC raises funds for charities such as Katrina Hurricane Relief. See how you can purchase a brick to show loved ones past and present the importance of history and charity.
Every year ROPC challenges students to do their best. We award scholarships of up to $1000 to students who show outstanding achievement and need.
