What people are saying:

The historic site of San Juan, which was built on the northeastern coast of Puerto Rico in 1511 as a military fortification to protect the West Indies and the Spanish Empire, includes fortresses, outlying positions, ammunition depots, walls and moats. After that, the island of Puerto Rico was extended and reinforced for centuries to prevent foreign aggression. The USA defeated Spain in the 1898 American-Western War.

    Magical

    Loved visiting this site. Was able to view from land and sea. Unfortunately due to pandemic was not able to see inside. Views from top are magical. Can’t wait to visit again when pandemic is over.

    Amazing views. Great for kites and drones. Would make for a nice picnic location. Bring the puppies and the kids.

    Loved the views. The walk to to the fort is great. Perfect location for a picnic. Puppies and kids can get all the running around they can handle.
