Built in 1672-1695 as an outpost of the Spanish empire, Castillo de San Marcos guarded St. Augustine, the first permanent European settlement in North America.
The Castillo has served the Spanish, the British, and finally the Americans as a military base during its over 300 year history. It was even seized by the Confederacy during the American Civil War.
