Great tour of the fort. Loved seeing how it was laid out and reading about all the history. I enjoyed seeing how the mote would have went around the fort; so often they are filled in. Great views from the top.

A must see for people who love old forts. Run by the National Park Service. Right in the middle of St. Augistine.

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