“Nice HavanaClub bar on top”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

The fortress is cool. Nice view of the whole seaside of the city and the Malecon.
The bar in the middle is a cherry on top. they make you genuine sugar cane juice cocktails with rum and fruits. Great refreshment. the bartender is also an official bartender for Havanaclub..he has even the logo tattooed on the right forearm...too cool!

“Great views of Havana”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

There are great views of Havana from the walls of El Morro Fortress, just an easy car ride through the tunnel from Habana Vieja. The fort was built in the 16th century to protect the harbor from bad guys. If you can't get over in person, you can certainly see it/photograph it from the other side of the entrance to the bay. There is a string of souvenir stands at the entrance.

“The views ALONE are spectacular!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Our party really enjoyed the history and the architecture, the back story of the fortress is very interesting. The small exhibitions inside made the experience that much more personable. A lot to do and see!

The views from the wall to Havana are phenomenal, I took my best pic's here of Havana.
