The Spanish Constitution Monument

The Spanish Constitution Monument

This monument was erected in 1813, to celebrate the Spanish Constitution. The Constitution was repealed in 1814. King Ferdinand VII ordered that all the monuments should be destroyed. However, the residents of St. Augustine defied the order, and it is one of the few remaining monuments that commemorate the Spanish Constitution of 1812. The monument is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as Part of the St. Augustine Historic Town Plan. As of February 2012, the City of St. Augustine has approved a plan to have it listed separately.
