Water Ponding in the Moat

Water Ponding in the Moat

This is the moat, on the west side of Castillo de San Marcos. This moat was normally dry when the fort was an active military post, although it could be flooded with water from Matanzas Bay. In this photograph, some water is ponded in the moat area. The fort is a National Monument, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
