Castillo de San Marcos

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Kim M. on January 9, 2003

Castillo de San Marcos National Monument is administered by the National Park Service. There is a small entrance fee of $5 per adult 17 and up (valid 7 days) and $2 per child 6 to 16. Children 5 and under are free. Parking at the fort is very limited and has a time limit.

The fort was built in the 17th century by the Spanish and has changed hands multiple times over the years. Listen to a ranger-led program or walk the battlements on your own. There are great views from the top and some good photo ops with cannons and turrets. There is also a small gift shop.
