Candlelight at the Castillo


The Castillo by Candlelight

castillo by candlelight

As dark falls over the Castillo de San Marcos, learn all about St Augustine’s fort and then explore it by the glow of candles.  It’s Castillo by Candlelight, and it’s free!

The program “Preserving the Past” will be held on Saturday, April 22.  Tours take place every half hour from 6:00 – 8:30.  The event is to celebrate National Parks Week.  Preserving treasures like the Castillo for future generations is no easy feat- Park Rangers and volunteers will share what it takes to preserve and protect it.

The presentation lasts approximately 40 minutes and afterwards guests can explore the Castillo de San Marcos, St Augustine’s most popular attraction, by candlelight.  Programs begin every fifteen minutes between 6:00 and 8:30.  For more information, please call (904) 829- 6506 ext. 233.

The Castillo is an easy walk from Carriage Way Bed and Breakfast – ten minutes, tops.  We are located right in the heart of the Historic District, never more than a few minutes from history.

Speaking of history, the Tourmaline Room is stocked with antiques – including a European armoire and dresser and floors that are original to the house.  We’ve added some modern touches, too, like a walk-in rainhead shower and lush bedding.

We work hard to protect and preserve Carriage Way Bed and Breakfast.  And like the Castillo, we’re pretty well-preserved, too.
