What You Need To Know

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Castillo de San Marcos National Monument will host a special evening tour, which looks at soldier life in the Castillo during the First Spanish period (1565-1763). During the early years of the Spanish colony, much of the city of St. Augustine directly relied on military pay to survive. Being a soldier was not only a job, it was a way of life. The tour follows a young man taking the plunge and joining the ranks as a soldier in defense of his hometown. Tours depart from the ticket booth at 6:15 p.m., 7:15 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for youth ages 5-15 and free for youth under age 5. Reserve tickets in advance through phone or at the Castillo ticket booth.
