The Castillo is a "must-see" for anyone visiting St. Augustine. Though we come every year, sometimes several times a year, to the area... we never miss taking time to revisit the Castillo!

There are normally excellent period demonstrations going on, from military drill to cannon fire, etc. The promotion of history here, and educational opportunities, are wonderful.

Take the time to walk the grounds outside of the fortress as well. You'll find some really neat stuff around there, and if you know the full history of the place... it's even better.

Historic Spanish Fort. Much history to it (walk through all the rooms of the fort to learn all about it!)

Had a blast. The canon reenactment was too cool. A beautiful place to take some pictures and learn a bit of history. The kids also participated in the Junior Ranger program. :)

This spanish fort gives you great views of St Augustine's harbor. The information given in the ranger introduction was excellent. The best in St. A's.

Last minute, I planned a half-day itinerary for attractions in St. Augustine. This was a place my husband really wanted to tour, but after walking around for hours doing other things, we just sat on the lawn and rested. There were so many people around that I imagine it is worth it for $7. But looking at the outside is free!!
