In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Castillo de San Marcos National Monument will host a special evening tour Castillo by Candlelight “Taking the Plunge”. Join us for a special look at soldier life in the Castillo during the First Spanish period (1565-1763). Discover if you have what it takes to be part of the garrison that successfully protected St. Augustine for almost 200 years. During the early years of the Spanish colony, much of the city of St. Augustine directly relied on military pay to survive. But being a soldier was not only a job, it was 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, his family, and his country.

Candlelight tours for this special ticketed event are available for:  6:15pm, 7:15pm, and 8:15pm.
