Fort Barrancas is an old Spanish Fort, and a part of the National Park Service, Gulf Islands National Seashore. There is a fee to get into the fort, and although we had a pass for entry, the fort happened to be closed for a holiday....More

Stationed here at NAS Pensacola in the early 1980's We used to explore and run around this place all the time. Now it is controlled and you have to pay to get in. Since we were running out of time decided not to visit. Disappointed.

The history involved in this place is amazing! The views are breathtaking but when it is better to go when the weather is cooler since you will be walking a lot.

There is not a lot to see here, but what there is is highly interesting. Be prepared to walk quite a bit, and climb up and down a lot of stairs if you want to see everything.

It is just down from the aviation museum. National park service run and well preserved. It is on an active navel base so understand you must go through security. Is worth it.

I went to both in the same day they are an hour apart and I would definitely choose Fort Pickens. The drive there is beautiful and worth the trip but a little long. Fort Barrancas is on a military base and a little hard to... More
