El Morro, San Juan: 38 reviews and 102 photos
The one thing you MUST see if you find yourself in San Juan is Castillo de San Felipe del Morro, which is a part of the San Juan National Historic Site. This massive fort, along with San Cristobol and the walls of the old city of San Juan comprise the largest fortification ever built by the Spanish in the new world. It is also one of the oldest European structures in the Western Hemisphere, dating back to the 1500s, and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.The place is as beautiful as it is fascinating.
If possible, give yourself a couple of hours to explore here, and a real history buff could easily spend much more time and not take it all in.
Address: 501 Norzagarey St., San Juan, PR 00901
