We went there alone, not a tour, it took several hours to view this magnificent site, we went there from Centro Historico using the ferry thus approaching the old fortress by foot. The view from its walls toward Habana is really superb. If you have time stay for the "cañonada" every day at 21:00 hour

A tour of the fortress included a stop at the La Triata rum and tobacco café where we bought rum and saw what they said was the world's longest cigar. By the looks of it, I have very little doubt. The grounds included cannons, cannon ball stacks, missiles/launchers and what looked like a Russian MIG.

It is possible to see the lighthouse from many locations as you ride around Havana. You can also go up to the fort and see it from there.

El Morro is massive and impressive and central to the city of Havana! It has endured decades of use and importance.

This is a beautiful place to visit and really a
Breathless display of man’s greatest creations. The sheer size of this place and the Cuban show put on at night are a must see.

Designed by the same architect who designed Puerto Rico's beautiful fort and you could see the similarities. And don't forget to stop by the huge Statue of Cristo.

From the outside, it looks like the Morro Castle in San Juan, Puerto Rico. As you get closer, you realize it needs tender loving care. Grass on the outside moat is 3 ft tall (needs mowing badly).There is grass growing on the outside walls. We were unable to enter the fort because the Norwegian Sun tour "Ultimate Highlights of Havana - Old & New" ($110 per person) did not include the entrance fee. If I want to see an ols Spanish fort I would go to San Juan.

We attended the "Cañonaso" ceremony. Make every effort to arrive by 8 pm to get a good spot to view the ceremony of men in formal Spanigh military costume and see the cannon firing. Although we arrived late, we heard th ceremony and the firing of the cannon. Afterwards, we enjoyed walking around and photographing the city from this vantage point. It is beautiful at night. Many locals as well as tourists attend this event.

This is worth the visit however there is not much to walk and could do this in 30mins we spared abour 3hrs and was a waste of time. There is one restaurant and no vegtarian food apart from Chips. The chicken was rubbery too. Not worth eating here. There were no street vendors until about 6pm. The cannons went off at 9pm worth waiting but get a good seat otherwise you will not see anything. Best seats are right next to the cannon. The view is amazing.
