Southeast Corner of Castillo de San Marcos From the Moat

Southeast Corner of Castillo de San Marcos From the Moat

This photo was taken from the moat of Castillo de San Marcos and shows the wall of the southeast corner of the fort. The cylindrical, domed turret pictured is called a bartizan or garita; it extends from the St. Augustine Bastion on the fort's terreplein. The moat deterred enemies from using scaling ladders to enter the terreplein.
