This unique collection of authentic pirate artifacts combines with elements of interactive technology to take visitors on an exciting adventure through the Golden Age of Piracy and the lives of that era's most infamous figures, some of whom attacked St. Augustine in the 17th century.
Plaza de Constitucion
The Plaza de la Constitucion is the central park in downtown St. Augustine. The park is on a square of land bordered by the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine, Trinity Episcopal, and the Government House. The plaza faces the Bridge of Lions and features a central pavilion used for city events and live entertainment. There is also a public market that has been in use since the 1500s. Fish, vegetables and other goods were traded here. Today, local vendors set up tables to sell their wares.
