Partially renovated, nice view of the bay, city and the airport. And of course the sea :) Bring plenty of water though...

Stunning location and vista of the Caribbean. Makes a great half day trip from the city. We met some interesting local artists selling sculpture.

The Morro Castle near Santiago de Cuba is smaller than the Morro Castle in Havanna, but also very nice. It is in excellent condition and offers beautiful views. One additional CUC has to be paid if entering the fortification with a camera.

One of the nicest castles we saw in Cuba. Since it is so "lonely", it feels very romantic, esp. in the evening when you are alone there. A must see if you are in Santiago!

Very interesting walking around the fortress. in one of the chapel rooms 4 woman were singing adding a lovely ambient sound as we walked around taking in the sights. Worth a visit. Fantastic views of the Caribbean.

The most spectacular castle visit I have ever experienced. A local language guide is very useful if you can find one. This is a very well preserved part of Caribbean history. It will take a good half hour to really get around it and take a camera!
