Construction of the Castillo began in 1672, and locally quarried coquina stone withstood cannon ball attacks for the next two centuries. Spain ceded Florida to the United States in 1819, the Castillo became a national monument in 1924, and restoration efforts during the 1930s ensured the fort’s remarkable history continues today—living proof you’re never too old to make a difference on this planet.
