Most Popular Area Attractions

Castillo de San Marcos National Monument

The Matanzas Bay along the northern Florida coast, is home to the oldest masonry fort in America. The Castillo de San Marcos National Monument is the site of the Spanish-built fortification, built by the Spanish in 1672 to protect the city of Saint Augustine.

This historic structure was built with coquina stone, over a twenty-three year period of time. It features four bastions, a ravelin that protects the entryway, a curtain wall with several embrasures and a moat, on twenty acres of land. Throughout the years, the fort's possession changed from the Spanish Empire to the Kingdom of Great Britain, to the Confederate States of America, to the final possession by the United States of America.

In 1933, the National Park Service began managing this incredible National Monument. Fort visitors have the opportunity to view the exhibits located throughout the fortress, as well as watch historic weapons demonstrations and presentations. Schedule plenty of time to tour the fort and learn about its rich history. Stay close to this must-see Northern Florida attraction, as a guest of Best Western hotels and enjoy comfortable lodging and excellent guest services.
