Fort Matanzas - Real St. Augustine Haunt
This historic fort is believed to be haunted and is one of the most well-known sites in St. Augustine. It has been said that the location is haunted by several soldier apparitions dressed in Spanish and French uniforms. After all, “Matanzas” is Spanish for “slaughter,” as it was named for the 245 Huguenots who were killed here in 1565. Suspicious footsteps have also been reported here.
