America's oldest masonry fort, the Castillo de San Marcos ("Castle of St. Marks") has overlooked the waterfront of historic St. Augustine, Florida, for more than three hundred years. Actually the tenth in a series of forts built to protect St. Augustine (the previous nine being constructed of wood), work on the Castillo was begun in October of 1672.
V2: Hotshot furnace used to heat cannonballs to shoot at wooden enemy ships. (only to see where are the cannons placed)
