Very interesting and very large. On Sunday's the locals will fly kites in the HUGE grass area around the walls and near the entrance. A MUST SEE if in Old San Juan.

Very interesting. Take your time and explore all of the levels. Watching the kids fly kites on the lawn out front was great too.

“A Must See In San Juan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

The number one tourist attraction in San Juan and many-times reviewed, this fortress lives up to the hype.

Don't plan an hour here; take your time. Wear comfortable shoes and maybe a hat. Drink lot's of water.

But do come explore (I about wore out my camera).

“Excellent way to spend time in old San Juan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

We have been here twice and it is such a great place to explore. There is so much history at the fort and the park service has done an great job of preserving the past. There are many displays depicting life and times of the fort. It's fun to watch the boats come into the harbor. I would certainly go back again.
