Castillo de San Marcos National Monument

My husband and I are planning to visit Saint Augustine again any time soon. I wanted to have a segway experience and visit the spooky building in the old town. The last time we visited this place, we went for an Educational Tour. On our next visit, we plan to explore the town and visit the old church. I took the picture below while I was on top of Castillo de San Marcos National Monument.What an awesome view right? This place has served Saint Augustine as outer defense and showed how mighty it was during the Spanish Empire. The monument was built for 23 years. If only the walls could talk right? See the year it was built.This monument was built using coquina, an indestructible limestone of broken sea shells and coral. The walls remained impenetrable from enemy and even the pounding of violent storms, it stood strong.
Castillo de San Marcos was built to protect and defend the Spain's claim in the New World.
While we were there, I noticed that there were so many tourists who comes in groups.
This is a very interesting place to see and if you happen to visit Florida, you should check out Castillo de San Marcos National Monument. You will surely enjoy it.
We want to book a hotel in the Old town because this place is full of charm and the view along the bay truly amazes me.
When we got out from this place, it was already night time and the whole place was gorgeous. We saw the sunset in the area and it was breathtaking. I highly recommend that you visit this place soon.
