Grenada is one of a group of islands known as the Windward Islands. They are about 100 miles from the Venezuelan coast. Other islands in the group include Martinique, St. Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Grenada is the second-smallest independent country in the Western Hemisphere. Christo-pher Columbus, in the service of Spain, was the first European to sight the islands of Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique. Grenada was named after the Spanish city of Grenada.
