An External View of a Bastion with a Bartizan

This is the southwest bastion of Castillo de San Marcos. The small, cylindrical turret that protrudes from the wall is a bartizan. The walls are made of coquina limestone that was joined with tabby mortar. Tabby is a type of concrete made from sand, lime, and shell. The fort is a National Monument, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
