The oldest masonry structure of its kind in the continental United States, Castillo de San Marcos was built and constructed between 1672 and 1695 by the Spanish to guard the coastline against invasion. In addition to being a prime example of the “bastion system” of fortification, it is one of only two fortifications in the world built out of coquina, a semi-rare form of limestone. Open every day of the year (except Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day), visitors can explore the Castillo on their own as well as during ranger-led tours. Regular programs also include cannon firings, weaponry demonstrations, and more.
You'll discover a fascinating, informative, entertaining park in the nation’s oldest city and America's First Colony. Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park offers visitors the chance to drink from the waters of the famous Ponce’s Spring of Eternal Hope, see stars the Planetarium, and visit the Timucua Indian Village of Seloy. You’ll find the history fascinating, offering a look at the Spanish Explorers arriving in 1513 and the Smithsonian Institute Archaeological Digs starting in 1934.
