1 South Castillo Drive
www.nps.gov/casa/index.html

A monument not only of stone and mortar but of human determination and endurance, the Castillo de San Marcos symbolizes the clash between cultures which ultimately resulted in our uniquely unified nation. A bastion of the largest empire ever created, the Castillo was built to protect and defend Spain’s claims in the New World. It was never defeated in battle. Its scarred walls still stand witness to over 330 years of history and culture. The Castillo comes alive through Ranger talks, museum exhibits, historical weapons demonstrations, living history reenactments, and special events.

This is a stately Georgian Style stone mansion facing the 410-year old Plaza. It occupies the site that throughout the colonial period (1565-1821) housed the residence and office of the colonial governors of Florida. Here, in 1821, the Spanish Governor turned over control of East Florida to the United States, ending the 256-year long era of colonial control. The museum displays archaeological artifacts, a recreated colonial era ship's hold, a prehistoric Indian canoe, authentic colonial weaponry, and gold and silver pieces from Spanish shipwrecks.

The Museum is on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1883, it is 1/10th the scale of a section of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. It set a precedent for St. Augustine and began the Moorish Spanish revival of architecture that is seen throughout the city today. On display are collections such as custom made bone china and the "Sacred Cat Rug" over 2400 years old made from the hairs of ancient cats that roamed the Nile River. Taken from a pyramid in Egypt it is said to possess a curse for anyone that walks on it.
