Hi From St. Augustine

This is my first post as well as the first from St Augustine! This is a charming north Florida town (city?) just south of Jacksonville. What does St. Augustine have that no other place in the world has? It has the last monument commemorating the second Spanish Republic.

In 1812, with the establishment of the Second Spanish Republic, monuments were erected throughout the Spanish Empire. With the renewal of the Spanish Monarchy in 1814 all of the monumnets were torn down except one. That one is in St Augustine.

This project is restoring the last of its kind, a one and only survivor.

Monumento de la Constitucion

More later about the problems and the solutions we have designed for this important monument.
