locked up, chained and patrolled by police.
Has turned into a party site for locals.
Some work has been done to the area by the beach, but the building is boarded up and unsafe. Looks like they may be planning to do more work on it, but not open to public at this point.

Old Fort but no one cares for it....
Dec 2017 • Family
Lots of History that is not told about this Fort , very interesting story and the Battle of Mazatlan that gave a victory over the French Invasion in March 1864. I walked thru the Fort but no one came out to give a tour , just sitting there if they can make it a tourist attraction that would be a jewel for Mazatlan and history behind it. just got to see the Canon fading away pointing to the west.

A site to see on a quick tour

Husband, son, and I saw this fort on our quick tour of Mazatlan. We toured in a vehicle called pumeria. It is like a mix of a Volkswagon and golf cart. If we had the time, we would have walked the coast. This was a fort to look at, but we didn't get the history.

Apparently Closed to Public - Quite Limited In Any Event

We could not enter the fort when we visited March 12, 2016 but could look inside and view the outer walls. There is one cannon facing the bay and one can imagine many soldiers serving here, with more cannon, peering through the slits in the walls.

A fort that isn't
Often misnamed the Old Spanish Fort, it actually is a monument to the heroic Battle of Mazatlan that took place when the warship Cordelliere tried to land troops here during the French invasion of 1864. They were repelled by canon fire from El Vigia (Lookout Hill). The monument was created during the reign of dictator Porfirio Diaz (1880-1910) and is in sad disrepair. Eventually the city wants to restore it and add a museum about the French occupation, but at this time noting has been done but talk.
