The site is amazingly huge. We were very impressed with all the artifacts on display and the way this place is built. Very educational. This was quite an experience and one we will remember for years to come
Reminiscent of Roman or Pre-Roman ruins in European countries, this castle and the lush greenery surrounding it with views of the sea make it an amazing place to walk. The walls of the castle are built with a special material too.

I've been to several historic forts, but most are Civil War remnants. This is much older, quite interesting, and worth the visit. Anyone will enjoy a couple hours or 90 minutes here; history buffs may want to spend a day.

Go early if you need to park...very limited parking at the site. It is a stop on the "trolley's" that roam through town (fee). Also there is little shade so it will get hot. I would avoid the weekend and any Flagler College event days. If you have a Seniors National Park card the entrance fee is FREE. ;)
