In the past Curacao island has been overlooked of all the European settlers, as it did not contain any gold. In the early years of its settlement it received more attention mostly because of the slave trade that was taking place. The Island of Curacao had changed possession between the British, the French and the Dutch in the past 200 years. Nowadays, Curacao is best known for the beauty it's radiating.
