Castillo hosts Sisters and Survivors event for Women’s History Month

275-SISTERS-AND-SURVIVORSIn honor of Women’s History Month, Castillo de San Marcos National Monument has announced to Historic City News that they will host a special “Sisters and Survivors” event on the evening of Saturday, March 12, 2016.

Though St. Augustine was primarily a military city throughout its long history, it could not have survived or thrived without the ladies of the community.

You are invited to attend a guided tour of the Castillo during which you will meet women from St. Augustine’s past and learn about the city’s rich history through their unique stories.

Programs will last about 45 minutes each, departing from the ticket booth at 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, and 8:00 pm. Nonrefundable tickets are available on a first come, first served basis and go on sale two weeks prior to the event. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the ticket booth or by phone by calling (904) 829-6506 ext. 232. Space is limited. The cost is $10 per adult ages 16 and up, $5 per child ages 5 to 15, and children under 5 free.

Castillo de San Marcos National Monument preserves the oldest fortification in the continental United States, a unique specimen of Spanish military architecture and engineering, related cultural resources, and their architectural, political, and social history.
