The place was originally used to protect the Spanish settlement. You can walk around and move through the small walkways as a Spanish soldier did. You can also hear the tortured voices of men screaming since Trujillo used the place as prison during his dictatorship 50 years ago.

This is the first fort built in the Americas. It is pretty cool just to walk its grounds and see the old buildings that were built by the Spanish. I just like going up to the tower just to observe the scenery. It has a very nice view of Santo Domingo. Just be careful because if it rains it is very slippery.

History of this place is awesome. If you happen to get a chance of the locals tour guys at cheap prices is worth seeing.
