Almost like a toy-town fort (its not a castle in that sense), but it is situated on the cliff to the north of the dry river and about one kilometer from its sister fort, Santa Catalina.
Now in government hands and painted brilliant white, this fortified gun emplacement dated from the C17th.
ther is not much to see , but it gives a flavour as to what lengths the Spanish were prepared to go to in order to secure the island , and defend against (English) pirates.
Only the gun platform and various cannon were on show, however the view from the battlements is outstanding.
