Fort Matanzas near St. Augustine, built by the Spaniards
in 1740, is now a memorial to commemorate a 1565
massacre. At that time, shipwrecked Huguenots from
France were executed by Spanish settlers. From 1916
onwards, the fort was renovated and used as a memorial.
Since the fort is located on Rattlesnake Island, it can
only be reached by ferry, which does not seem to harm
the rush of visitors, as up to 1 million visitors visit
the fort every year.
