Owner description: In 1665, the Castro Fortress was constructed to protect the city from continuous attacks by the British Navy. During that time, the Castro, the San Sebastian Fortress and the city wall were a strong defensive system of the city. This defensive system was not very much effective because it couldn't stop hostile interventions. At present, the fortress has become a famous tourist attraction because of beautiful gardens, open spaces and superb views.
