In 1524, a horde of Incan gold – known as the “Treasure of the Trinity” – was stolen.  For 500 years, Jesuits priests, privateers such as Thomas Cavendish and mathematician Paul Thiry have all searched the coast of Brazil for this legendary bounty, but in all that time, no one has cracked the code as to where the treasure might have been hidden… until now.

Discovery Channel will follow the adventures of these real-life treasure seekers who set out for two months in search of this priceless booty. TREASURE QUEST: SNAKE ISLAND, an all-new series premiering Friday, July 17, at 10 PM ET/PT on the Discovery Channel
