Western Corners of Castillo de San Marcos

Western Corners of Castillo de San Marcos

This photo was taken from the moat of Castillo de San Marcos and shows the western corners of the fort along with the city of St. Augustine. The bastion of the northwest corner (closest to viewer) is called St. Paul Bastion and the bastion of the southwest corner (furthest from viewer) is called St. Peter Bastion. The wall connecting the two bastions is called a curtain and is part of the fort's main wall.
