"Fort of History" Top 5 Page for this destination Castillo de San Marcos Tip by Shihar

Castillo de San Marcos, Saint Augustine: 52 reviews and 130 photos

Since I lived here, I never actually have done all the touristy things, including been inside the fort.

BUT I will include this tip for the VT readers as an option of things to do while in St. Aug.

This fort was built in 1672 and completed several years later. The coquina stone that the fort is made from was taken from Anastasia Island. (See my Off the Beaten Path tip-Anastasia Island)
