  El Morro Fort
by SmileyLeSa

El Morro fort is a six-level fort located 140 feet above the San Juan Bay. It took about 200 years to complete the entire complex. 'Morro'. means 'promontory', to keep seaborne enemies out of San Juan.

You can walk throughout the tunnels, barracks and dungeons of the fort. From the top level there is a great view of the ocean. You may explore the fort on your own or take a guided tour.

El morro is open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm from June to November and 9:00 am to 6:00 pm December.
