The Defensive System of Colonial St. Augustine

Following the 1702 English siege of St. Augustine, the Spanish began construction of a system of peripheral fortifications to protect the town based on the principle of defense-in-depth.

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.
