Callao Fort
Feb 2020 • Solo
The fort was well preserved with good artifacts. I asked for a bilingual guide but was told it was only in Spanish. Unfortunately I couldn't understand more than half of the information on the guided tour so I was puzzled more often than not. It was an inexpensive way to see a historical site.

Nice afternoon activity. A lot of history about defending Peru and their feight for liberty. Enjoyed the fortress but unfortunately the last tour has no english speaking guide. Also all signs are in Spanish.

Cool Military Fort
Sep 2019 • Friends
I really enjoyed my visit to this fort. I learned about Peruvian history, military wise, here and appreciated the hands-on experience. The tour guide and narrator, Gladys, was the best.

18th century fortress protecting the port of Callao
Oct 2019 • Friends
Dominates the ocean by the port of Callao a few miles from the heart of Lima. Very well preserved and an interesting visit. Has a nice museum. Important to the defense of Lima in the 19th century when Spain tried to take it's former colony back

WORLD HERITAGE SINCE MAY 1952
Dec 2018 • Couples
Visited this fortress during a nice sunshine afternoon on 12.12.18.
The Real Filipe Fortress was built to defend the main Peruvian port and the city of Lima from pirates and corsairs during colonial times.
In 1886 the fortress was used as a naval defence point between a Spanish fleet sent to South America to reclaim its colonies and the land batteries in the cost of Peru.
The fortress is currently the Peruvian Army Museum.

Nov 2018 • Couples
you can visit this place solo by taxi or buss if you know Spanish. me and my girlfriend visited here and since we were not with a tour group ie one that you pay 180 sol for we didn't have an English guild as I do not speak Spanish she translated for me. but if your with a tourist group they have guides included in that. its a interesting place to visit and it has a lot of history.

A Typical Spaniard-style Fortress surprisingly close to Lima
Jan 2018 • Solo
That's completely worth it day trip if you have time to spare in Lima. As a matter of fact, if you go early in the morning (a suggest you a private taxi, rather than a group tour), you can be done by lunch time. The grounds are well preserved and spotlessly clean. Be prepared to walk a lot (the pentagon-shaped fortress and surrounding area are huge) and climb lots of stairs, up and down. Besides the fortress itself and the great views from the towers, highlights are the cannons collection, the small museum inside the fortress with great historical artifacts (specially weaponry), and the soldiers dressed in character.

Bi language guide made the tour.

Visited on a school day and got hooked up with thirty or so well behaved but excited school kids. The guide was one of the soldiers stationed at the fort and did the tour in Spanish and English and was very interesting.
Well worth a visit to learn of Peru's struggles for independence and it's naval history.
The site has been recovered from ruins and is still in the process of restoration but generally finished.
We were led to believe that the troops may be moving out but it's still an operational base and respected as such.

Huge fort with a grewsome history. Watch out for the pirate statues: not statues, but live people. Pirates not necessary
