    The fort was built in the 17th century by Spanish settlers to protect St. Augustine from other invaders. The structure itself is built from coquina, a material similar to concrete but made out of shell particles, it is commonly found in Florida. The fort is open daily with the exception of Thanksgiving and Christmas, and is the perfect family-friendly activity for the afternoon, while also expanding your knowledge on the history of the United States.
