Discovering Florida: Castillo de San Marcos (PHOTOS)

Welcome to our newest photo-report, Orlando Theme Park News Readers!
Today we have a special photo-gallery that will virtually bring you to St. Augustine, the country's oldest city. In the past, we posted a few photos of some of the amazing local attractions, and today we are sharing with you some pictures of the great Castillo de San Marcos, which we are sure you will enjoy, especially since it resembles the Castillo del Morro found at the Magic Kingdom Park:

Inside the castle there are many rooms you can explore:

The courtyard at the center of the castle serves as the central hub:

The people working there wear the same clothes that the people in the late 1800s wore:

From the top you can see the entire area surrounding St. Augustine:

  1. Magnificent uo-date, beautiful pictures. Now I realy want to go to St. Augustine to visit Castillo de San Marcos and other local attractions. Next time when I can come to Florida. Thank you so much for the inspiration. Matthew from The Nethelands

  2. Not to be a stickler, but in reality, the Castillo de Morro at WD resembles the Castillo de San Marcos (and also Morro Castle in Havana), since this fort dates to the 1600s! Beautiful pics, and Flagler College (the old Hotel Ponce de Leon) in the background there.

  3. Just goes to prove, if you want something to last - build it in stone!
