Santo Domingo Redoubt
The Defensive System of Colonial St. Augustine
Between 1704-1821, the Spanish completed the outworks of the Castillo and erected five earthen walls known as lines of entrenchment. The Rosario Line and the eastern segment of the Cubo Line formed the city wall, also known as the line of circumvallation.
During the British occupation of Florida (1763-1784), military engineers repaired the Spanish fortifications and erected a chain of seven free-standing redoubts west and south of the town.
Erected by City of St. Augustine.
