Pirates, Peasants, and Poltergeists
In a town acutely aware of its place in history, sometimes the extraordinary finds itself hidden by the mundane. Our tour offers a unique and compelling look at the paranormal happenings lurking in every corner of the Ancient City. Being the oldest continuously inhabited city in the United States means that plenty of people have come to St. Augustine to study its unique cocktail of cultural history. However, most people still miss the palpable terror that much of the city is built on—or maybe they just don’t want to see it. Every quaint inn, trendy restaurant, or historical landmark is built on the horror of a grisly and bloody past. Even seemingly mundane places, like a strip mall, a quiet diner, or a local park, are rife with literal and figurative artifacts of tragedy, despair, or loss. With Old City Ghosts, you will walk on the same paths as Native American warriors, Spanish Conquistadors, and dishonorable pirates. You will understand the psychic scars that linger in places after tragic fatal fires claim the lives of the innocent. Your trip through St. Augustine’s storied history will help you understand the impact history can have on a place, all while making the hair stand up on the back of your neck.
What draws the supernatural to St. Augustine?
If you are not the sort of person excited by history, then St. Augustine’s reputation as a historical treasure trove might conjure images of a sunny but unexciting place suitable only for socks-and-sandal-clad history professors looking to discover a new pile of rubble for their papers. However, that could not be farther from the truth. Since its founding several centuries ago, St. Augustine has been a hotbed of excitement and intrigue that has littered the area with both physical and spiritual connections to a deeper, more meaningful historical legacy. Sure, you could read about the Spanish occupation, or the area’s connection with the slave trade, or the city’s struggle with bloodthirsty pirates, but those accounts will skip over the true strangeness happening as a result of that history every single day. Experiencing that horrifying truth in person at night will help you feel like a part of the city’s deranged and ghostly history. Reserve your tour today, and experience a side of St. Augustine that no history teacher would have the courage to teach you!Read sightings & stories!
