Can't imagine that people were living there surrounding by wild life and indians. In the XV century it was something. I felt in love with the story of that castillo, how it was made and also the quality of the volonteers who are working there. A must to see

We biked down from Island Life bike rentals, stopping first at the lighthouse. It was crowded on a beautiful weekend, but we we able to find a bike rack and do a short walk into the fort.

Wish we had had a National Park Pass. $10 was a little high entrance fee - and not a lot to see, but the views of the water I thought were beautiful! We hurried through it, maybe spent 45 minutes, but it was an interesting visit, and we learned a little bit of the history of St. Augustine.

This fort is well preserved and the self-guided tour is very educational. Parking is hard to come by next to the fort, so be prepared to walk a bit from your car to the entrance.

Very impressive - just the fort itself without the exhibits. It is worth visiting just for the views. The history is amazing. Definitely worth a visit. Take your senior national park pass to get in free.

The Fort cost was reasonable and paying for parking wasn't bad because the location is easy to walk around from. The Fort is amazing and the preservation of the Fort was excellent. Beautiful views of the water from the Fort.

Interesting history. Musket and cannon firing are a must see. Ask questions, the park workers are knowledgeable and will tell great stories.

Small interesting fort but a little expensive the fee for the visit. It is worth to visit the surrounding area of the city.
