General Note

  • The Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine is Florida's dominant Spanish Colonial landmark. Construction of the fortress, which took a quarter century, was completed in 1696. With walls 16 feet thick at the base and protected by moat, the Castillo was never taken by force. the principal material is coquina, a sedimentary rock formed from billions of tiny seashells and quarried nearby. Most of the laborof quarrying and building was performed by Indians under the supervision of Spanish artisans.
