The Plaza de la Constitucion is a reminder of the brief time in 1813 that Spain had a constitutional government. In the center of the Plaza is the Monumento de la Constitucion. Many such monuments were built in 1813, but when the monarchy returned to Spain in late 1813, all monuments were ordered to be destroyed. City officials in St. Augustine did not comply, and as a result, this is believed to be the only such monument remaining in the world
