One of the oldest European defensive structures in the Americas... built to guard te city. It took nearly 20 years to build as was finished in 1577. It was built by forced labour... all blacks or mulattos who didn't have owners had to volunteer or get 100 lashes or pay ten pesos. It has cannons and mortars and houses a numseum of navigation. Worth a wander for a few hours

This fort is exactly how you imagine them to look with it's huge unscaleable walls and large moat. The museum is also very interesting - it was actually built too far from the harbour to be truly effective and so became a Palace home. The info signs also have a full transcription in braille which was a pleasant surprise.

This is for me one of the must do in Cuba. It’s an amazing fortress build during Spain’s colonial times. It has a museum inside that you can stroll around for about 1 hour.

On my opinion, the fortress on the other side of the river is much more interesting. Small museum inside.
