“great histoircal site”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

This is the first fort built in the Americas. It is pretty cool just to walk its grounds and see the old buildings that were built by the Spanish. I just like going up to the tower just to observe the scenery. It has a very nice view of Santo Domingo. Just be careful because if it rains it is very slippery.
