This Fortress is timeless 500+ and counting. Inside you can imagine the Pirate Ships or the English or Spanish Armadas entering the Bay which you can see the stunning view very well from it. The museum exhibits inside are well informed with all the details...More

A fantastic piece of history that made you want to explore every corner of this spectacular fortress, plus you get spectacular 360 degree views. A must see when in Puerto Rico!

Loved the view, great sites on both sides of structure. Rangers very nice friendly. Cemetary view was different over looking ocean , the grass area in front of Castillo made for nice area to rest, relax and have lunch if one wanted

Historic and beautiful castle protecting the Spanish territory since the 15 hundreds, a mastery of architecture with a backdrop of a beautiful ocean.

Excellent place to spend the day, over 500 years old, many corners to explore. Wear comfortable clothes, sunscreen and a hat. Lots of walking up, down and around.
