"Arsenal" Fortaleza Ozama - Ozama Fortress Tip by mikey_e
Fortaleza Ozama - Ozama Fortress, Santo Domingo: 8 reviews and 27 photos
The Arsenal is a smaller building inside the Fortaleza that is set apart from the Torre del Homenaje. It was built in 1502 and was the provisional fort until the completion of the Fortaleza Ozama proper. The building itself isn't open to tourist visits and it may seem that it is oout of bounds, given that the entire lawn up to it is left to be overgrown with long grasses. Still, you can go up to the building and photograph it. There is an interesting sculpture of the patron Santa Bárbara in a niche above the doorway.
Address: Fortaleza Ozama
Directions: South of the Torre del Homenaje in the Fortaleza Ozama
