if you love history you have to go there, there is so much history in this place. Also you'll have an amazing view of the ocean, and it's so wind. Bring water and wear comfortable shoes, you will need it.

Walked from the Condado Hilton very long walk get a taxi. A very neat place to visit and walk around. Makes you think back to the pirate days. You can look out over the sea where there cannons were!

This was a wonderful place to visit. The views were amazing. Wear comfortable shoes there is a lot of walking to be done. It was not very expensive for entry and I believe the passes are good for more than one day. If you have time it is worth visiting!

We went to the Fort with our daughter (21) ten years ago, and although it was a hot, humid day, nothing could have stopped us from seeing this amazing work. Considering when it was built, it is probably the best fort ever erected, with an eye to every possible attack. It is one of the great wonders of the world,... More

The place is beautiful because it's filled with history and information. This is a great place to go if your into history, or old things. I personally like to learn the history of the land and the people when I visit places. This is a good place to start.

You can only view from the outside as it is closed to public now. Was part of the defensive system of forts that protected old colonial San Juan from sea attacks

Be sure to wear good walking shoes as there are many levels. You will get plenty of exercise as you learn a great deal of the history of the fort.

It's not a designated landmark with no actual educational signs telling what any thing is, but it of course is a piece of history and the fort helped protect Puerto Rico and the entire Caribbean. It's not often open as I think its part of the Hilton grounds, but its not hard to sneak around the walls so you can... More
