St. George Street & City Gates

DESCRIPTION

Why You Should Go

City Gates: Located at the north end of St. George Street, these ancient columns or gates have stood for over 200 years. Built in 1808 as the first line of defense for the city, these ancient columns were built because St. Augustine was attacked by Carolinian Governor James Moore and his troops in 1702, which damaged much of the existing town. After this, the residents of the city began the construction of a fortification around the city. The northern protective border was known as the Cubo Line. It was mostly made of earthworks, but was fortified with palmetto logs, a moat, a cannon, and a wooden gate towards the road that we now know as San Marco Avenue.
St. George Street: This is one of the main streets in the city that is pedestrian only (no vehicles allowed). Starting at the Old City Gate from the north, you can walk St. George Street all the way to the Plaza de la Constitucion. St. George Street is a destination hotspot in the city which is home to retail shops, restaurants, bars and museums.
