Castillo de San Marcos

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by kikster on October 31, 2005

This fort is a must-see! It was built in the late 1600s by the Spaniards who colonized Florida to guard the town of St. Augustine, the first European settlement in the US. Throughout the centuries, the Castillo has seen battles, attacks, and sieges. Today, it is a very interesting place, and at only $6 per person (children 14 and under get in for free), cheap entertainment for the whole family. Make sure that you visit the spooky prison cells and enjoy the gorgeous view of the Atlantic ocean from the towers.
