Welcome to TRYP by Wyndham Sebastian St Augustine, your premier hotel near Castillo de San Marcos, St Augustine. Stay with us and enjoy convenient access to the oldest masonry fort in the United States of America where you can explore over 340 years of North American history in a single afternoon
Construction began on the monument in 1672 and was designed by the Spanish engineer, Ignacio Daza. The structure was complete by 1695 but it has continued to undergo updates and renovations over the years. However, it remains a stunning monument that still bears its original walls made of mortar and stone. Castillo de San Marcos, St Augustine changed hands several times, was operational under five different flags, and was besieged twice by various British Forces. Later, under United States’ control, the fort acted as a military prison. It wasn’t until the 1900s that Castillo was transferred to the National Park Service and became a popular tourist destination.
A historic tour through Castillo de San Marcos, St Augustine takes you into the embedded rooms and cells that once housed prisoners and soldiers. You will explore the fort’s grand interior courtyard, as well as the gun deck, which provides a spectacular view of the city. For the full experience, it is recommended that you visit the fort over the weekend. Castillo’s ranger-led tours include cannon firings and weaponry demonstrations on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
