The Castillo de San Marcos is America’s only true medieval structure. The Spanish began construction in 1672, and it took 23 years to complete. It was constructed from coquina, an indigenous composition of bonded shells that can easily absorb the impact of a cannonball.

Throughout its long history, the Castillo de San Marcos has seen many bloody battles fought and many people lose their lives. As a result, it is now the haunting ground for a number of ghosts.

There are reports of orb sightings, phantom smells, feelings of dread and wandering cold spots throughout the fort and surrounding property. Many people have captured ghostly images on their cameras and heard voices of the long dead recorded on their vacation videos.

Several people have reported seeing a soldier in the garb of a conquistador patrolling the top of the Castillo at night, long after the area has been cleared and closed for the day.
