Know More about this tour

On this afternoon tour, you'll learn about colonial Pensacola and the largest battle ever to be fought in Florida. While the city often celebrates its original Spanish establishment in 1559, it sometimes overlooks the next 250 years of colonial history. You will be able to see where the original 1756 Spanish village began and ended downtown.

You will also see what the British did to transform the community to a town that we could recognize today as well as where they erected four fortifications to guard it from Spanish attack. Learn why Pensacola was so important to the Spanish and how they took the town. Your guide will take you to trace the marches of the Spanish and French forces and to see over a dozen battle sites in what became the longest siege of the American Revolution. You will also tour Ft. George, which in 1781 was the largest British fort. After this tour, you'll definitely understand how and why Pensacola developed the way it did.
