Castillo by Candlelight

October 17, 2015 @ 6:15 pm - 9:00 pm

| See Event

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Catillo de San Marcos National Monumnet will host special evening tours. Please join us for a look at a soldier’s life in the Castillo during the First Spanish Period (1565-1763).

During the early years of the Spanish colony, being a soldier was not only a job, but a way of life. Accompany us as we follow a young man taking the plunge and joining the ranks as a soldier in defense of his hometown. See if you have what it takes to be part of the garrison that successfully protected St. Augustine for almost 200 years.

There will be three candlelight tours approximately 45 minutes in length. Tours depart from the ticket booth at:

6:15 pm
7:15 pm
8:15 pm

Non-refundable tickets are available on a first come, first serve basis and can be purchased in advance at the ticket booth or by calling 904-829-6506, extension 232. Space is limited!

$10 per Adult age 16 and up
