This is a place that should not be missed in Havana. The castle itself and the view of Havana from ther are excellent,
This long sea wall stretches (seemingly) as far as the eye could see and is flanked on one end by the remains of an old fort—picturesque and romantic--if you're in the right mood. A mob scene on weekend night-avoid!
You pay to enter the castle and then again to see the lighthouse and surrounding fort. You can pay extra for a guided tour but it is not necessary. Well preserved and worth the visit.

It is a very large fort so were able to have a walk round the grounds but the best part was watching the... More

This is an intact Castle With a 400 years history. The Moro is large, a regular township. Home to a garrison, not only for the protection of the Habana population, also against it! We brought children which enjoyed the place.
