What You Need To Know

Castillo de San Marcos National Monument will host special evening tours on Friday. Please join us for a special look into the Siege of 1740. In partnership with the St. Augustine Garrison and Colonial Nightwatch, staff and volunteers in 18th century period clothing will tell the stories of St. Augustine on the brink of its destiny. Visitors will experience the evening before the Fort Mose counterattack and learn about life in the town during the siege as the cannons fire away at the British on Anastasia Island. During the tours, visitors and local residents will hear the Castillo's cannons fire multiple times between 6:45-9 p.m. There will be six nighttime candlelit living history tours, each lasting roughly 45 minutes. Tours depart from the ticket both at 6:45 p.m., 7 p.m., 7:15 p.m., 7:30 p.m., 7:45 p.m. and 8 p.m. The cost is $10 for adults, $5 for youth ages 5-15 and free for youth under age 5. Tickets can be reserved by phone or at the Castillo ticket booth.
