A Monument to the Spanish Constitution of 1812

A Monument to the Spanish Constitution of 1812

This monument was erected in 1813, to celebrate the Spanish Constitution of 1812. The Constitution was repealed in 1814. King Ferdinand VII ordered that all the monuments should be destroyed, so there are not many remaining today. Due to the remoteness of the St. Augustine colony, this monument escaped destruction. 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.
