Important to the history of St. Augustine, especially the changing ownership over the years between the English and the Spanish.

This is an historical place that is really worth visiting. The cannons are fired a few times a day depending on the weather and the staff and volunteers are so friendly here. Well worth the visit

We love to come here to enjoy the history and if course take photos of the family. The interior is filled with lots of information and the cannons are a 'blast'. On a nice day don't forget to roll down the grassy hill!

Rangers are very knowledgeable and took time to engage us in discussions and activities. The handiwork and engineering of this place are amazing

Don't miss this place. The cannons are worth the visit all by themselves. I have visited for 30+ years and it never gets old.

If you like to visit historic towns or attractions this is a must do. You can walk around the fort at your leisure and participate in different presentations and reenactments. The cannons on the upper level are my favorite.

Amazing national park, cannons firing, self guided tours. Ranger activities where the kids earn certificates and patches.

We didn't see any inside the fort, but they were down around the bottom (where the old moat was).
