Part of the San Juan National Historic Site; much larger complex than Castillo San Cristobal - both are excellent and worth a visit. If you are not into history then come for the views, stunning views of the ocean and San Juan. We enjoyed visiting all corners of this fortress and would visit again.…

Years of history, thousands of people dead to build this fortress. Spectacular view. Puerto Rico is beautiful and its people warm and every friendly. Few destinations like Puerto Rico. A perfect climate, I am in love with Puerto Rico.

This structure is amazing. See the history, how they built that fortress. How many people died in the construction. Is huge. Wonderful view. You can see children playing outside, flying kites. I enjoyed the visit, the view, the people.

If you love history, this is another place you should visit. The setting is beautiful for a fort and the grounds well maintained. There is a self guided tour with a historical movie in one of the rooms.

The fort is amazing, for me it’s a must see if you visit Puerto Rico. A bit tricky for people on wheelchairs in some parts, but ok overall if traveling with someone that can move you around (strong 😬). There is another fort about 15-20 minutes walking distance, also in Old San Juan and the ticket works for both forts if used in a two day period. I believe it’s still $10 per ticket. Tours are nice and recommended if you want to learn details about the forts. Amazing spots for pictures of the ocean and for portraits! Even thought the Fort itself closes early, the sunset can be soaked up from the outside of the fort and many locals do! Also flying a kite outside of the fort on the grounds is free and one local fun day for kids and grownups! …
