Sunlight pours through the doorway of a room in the old Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, FL.
A bastion of the largest empire ever created, the Castillo was built to protect and defend Spain’s claims in the New World. Though caught in the whirlwinds of colonial warfare and intrigue, it was never defeated in battle. Its scarred walls still stand witness to over 330 years of history and culture.
