Considered by many to be the centerpiece of St. Augustine, the Castillo is the oldest masonry fort in the United States, dating back to 1672. It is also apparently a paranormal hot-spot, with night-time visitors frequently capturing orbs in their digital photos. The ghost of a woman can sometimes be seen walking around the fort, and some claim to have run into Spanish soldiers who were so real-looking they actually tried to have conversations with them.
