El Morro is a beautiful place to go with your camera. We spent the day there and had a great time taking photographs of the place. We did, however, make the mistake of thinking we could walk there. We walked through the tunnel (poor air quality, carbon everywhere) and we were greeted by a man with a whistle at the... More

This is a most photogenic fortress and one of the better attractions in Havana. It's a nice relaxing place to spend an hour after the hustle and bustle of Old Havana.

This place offers great views back towards Havana. Is easy to get there in a taxi under the sea through the tunnel. There are some local stalls there and some trailers selling cocktails over there. Just down the road are some great military stuff that is worth a look.

After having seen Old Havana it's nice to see this place. Take the bus for the east beach and get down at the first stop. The place is quite impressive, very nice view of Havana. Very close there is a nice restaurant with a terrace on the sea

Morro Castle guards the entrance to Havana Bay. It can be viewed from miles around as it dominates the port entrance. Great photo op from many locations.

yes, take some pictures I guess, but there's not much there to see. You need to get a boat there, its not worth the fuss

We went to the Fortress to watch the firing of the Canon which occurs nightly at 9:00 pm. We took a taxi from the Malecon to get there about an hour early and were able to get a place near the front. Best to were ear plugs as it is very loud when you are close. Great views back towards... More

This castle sitting across the inlet from Havana provides the most beautiful views of the city of Havana. If you are staying in Vedado, plan to leave your hotel or casa particular and catch a taxi there by around 6:45 pm as El Morro attracts quite the crowd for the nightly firing of the cannon at 9 pm. This will... More

Awesome views from the city. World heritage site. If you don't have the money to go inside, you can just walk around the el Morris and nice pictures still.
