The towers in Spain reminded me of the forts I had been to in the United States. Forts that the Spanish built when they were a world power, extending their reach to the West. One of these forts is Castillo de San Marcos in Saint Augustine, Florida.
Saint Augustine is one of my favorite places in the US. It is so full of history and at Castillo de San Marco National Monument does not only offer a glimpse of history, but also boasts of a beautiful view!
