Description

Spanish Barracks Ruins, St Augustine, FL.

This was the barracks for the Spanish who constructed Castillo de San Marcos, completed in 1695. These ruins are all that remain of what was probably a Spanish barracks which housed the quarry overseer, master masons, and stonecutters who were involved in the construction of the Castillo de San Marcos. The quarry, located directly across the road from this site, contained rich veins of coquina which the Indian workers shaped into rough blocks.
