Fort Matanzas National Monument
Serving as a mighty reminder of the early Spanish empire, the area became a National Monument in 1924.
Today, the site encompasses not only the fort, but also 100 acres of salt marsh and barrier islands along the Matanzas River.
Similar to the Castillo de San Marcos, the Fort was built of coquina shellstone. The Visitor Center, built in 1936, provides full information and contains some museum items.
