Presidio Santa Maria De Galve

Presidio Santa Maria De Galve

This Spanish site, dating from 1698, was the first area made into a permanent settlement in Pensacola. The University of West Florida has turned the site into an outdoor exhibit, complete with a recreated portion of the Fort San Carlos de Austria and two original cannon.

We hope you enjoy our work.
