Historic District, Saint Augustine: 17 reviews and 47 photos

Saint Augustine's historic district is made up of cobblestone streets, historic buildings, quaint cafes, unique shops and bed-and-breakfast inns. This area is the center of the oldest continuously inhabited European town in the United States.

The town was laid out in the 16th Century. It was surrounded by a wall, just just a single gate on the north side near the Castillo. While the town's layout of streets and walls dates back to the 1500s, the oldest surviving buildings are from the early 1700s.

Among the most notable locations in the historic district are the Plaza de la Constitución, the Oldest House, the Basilica Cathedral of St. Augustine, the Villa Zorayda, and Stanbury Cottage.
