Unfortunately we got to the town center after 5PM so we did not have much light time to take photos of the buildings, also there were so many people around that getting a shot was a challege. This is clearly a tourist area with lots of shops and restaurants and bars in these old buildings.
The 29th Annual Nights of Lights was still going on so the there were plenty of lights. Our stop in was quick, one night only so we did not see all that much of the city. We ended the evening looking at the moot at Castillo de San Marcos
You can’t stay in in St. Augustine without visiting the Castillo de San Marcos, “St. Mark’s Castle”. It is the oldest masonry fort in the continental United States. The construction started in 1672 and finished in 1695. The fortress is made of coquina stones.
The fort was declared a National Monument in 1924, and it was deactivated in 1933 after 251 years of continuous military possession.

I like St. Augustine – visted several times – but it’s been a while. Thanks for taking me back with your wonderful photos.
I didn’t see this post when I commented on your St Augustine Lighthouse post. You did see the Christmas lights! My daughter went to Flagler College in St Augustine for one semester and said the tourists were on campus constantly. She was not a fan of that.
I can understand why, it was low season now, so there was not huge amount of people about.
