About the Castillo De San Marcos St Augustine

“The Castillo de San Marcos (Spanish for “St. Mark’s Castle”) is the oldest masonry fort in the continental United States.

The famous landmark is located on the western shore of Matanzas Bay in the city of St. Augustine, Florida.

It was designed by the Spanish engineer Ignacio Daza, with construction beginning in 1672, 107 years after the city’s founding by Spanish Admiral and conquistador Pedro Menéndez de Avilés.

At this time, Florida was part of the Spanish Empire.

The fort’s construction was ordered by Governor Francisco de la Guerra y de la Vega after a raid by the English privateer Robert Searles in 1668 that destroyed much of St. Augustine.

And, it damaged the existing wooden fort.

Work proceeded under the administration of Guerra’s successor, Manuel de Cendoya in 1671. Then, the first coquina stones were laid in 1672.

The construction of the core of the current fortress was completed in 1695, though it would undergo many alterations and renovations over the centuries.

Though built in part by Black Spanish slaves, the fort later served as one of the first entry points of British-owned African slaves into the Spanish territories, where they were freed by the Spanish.

This quickly led to the first free Black settlement in the future United States.” ~ Wiki
