Operated by: St. Augustine Experiences
Both Prince Achille Murat (nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte), and American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson stayed here in the 1820's to fight a bout of illness. This 1790 coquina house is a great example of Second Spanish period architecture.
Extending south from the Plaza to Bridge Street, Aviles Street is one of the narrow, brick lined, historic streets of the city which has retained much of its colonial character.
Duration: 10 minutes

It is now operated as a museum by the Sisters of St. Joseph.
Pass By: Plaza de la Constitucion
The plaza has been a central part of St. Augustine since 1573 when it was first laid out by the Spanish Royal Ordinances.
The narrowest street in the city! Built only 7 feet wide to make it almost impossible to steal gold being transported from the ships to the Royal Spanish Treasury.
Pass By: Castillo de San Marcos National Monument
The oldest and largest masonry fort in the continental United States. Finished in 1695 and survived 2 British attacks. It is not part of the National Park Service.
