    Step back in time as you visit the oldest extant Spanish fortification in the United States, a bulwark that remains as a monument to the European colonization of America. The Castillo de San Marcos dates back to 1672 and is a fine example of military architecture built in defense of the Spanish crown. The fort's masonry is called coquina and for more than 200 years of battle, this limestone withstood countless strikes among European powers. The dearth of traditional materials in Florida forced the Spanish to use this porous, yet resilient material, much to the dismay of their enemies. It was declared a national monument in 1924 and today, San Marcos remains a fascinating, eerie place. At the visitor's center you can join a ranger program, see a live re-enactment or just walk around and explore the fortress, whatever you choose, the fort definitely merits the trip.
