The Most Haunted City In Florida
St. Augustine is one of the nation’s oldest cities. It has a ton of history some good and some very bad. So it’s not surprising that a city this old is known for its haunted and creepy stories. One of the most haunted locations and oldest “Castillo de San Marcos” was built in the late 1600s. It was built to protect the city from foreign invasion. It saw conflict on numerous occasions and many say this is the reason why it’s so haunted.
One of the most well-known ghosts that have been seen on the grounds is that of a woman. It’s said that centuries ago the colonel’s wife would sneak away to meet her secret lover. For years they wouldn’t get caught until one day the colonel smelled her perfume. It was said they vanished until over a century later their skeletons were found inside a room in the castle.
People still report smelling the strong scent of a women’s perfume while in the fort. Others have been touched and have reported seeing a woman walking around the grounds. On some occasions, people have seen the colonel staring at the ocean in deep thought.
That’s just one of the many stories that have stretched throughout the history of the city. Today you’ll learn about some of the most haunted places in the city through this walking tour we found by ViewFromTheCheapSeats . Check it out and let us know your thoughts.
