"Spain's Largest New World Fortification" San Cristobal Fort Tip by bsfreeloader

San Cristobal Fort, San Juan: 22 reviews and 77 photos

Not nearly as popular with tourists as Castillo San Felipe del Morro, Castillo San Cristobal is worth a visit in its own right. Built on San Cristobal Hill, the fort is the largest Spanish fortification in the New World. San Cristobal has the same basic structure as El Morro, including cannon openings and historical displays but it also has some unique tunnel walks, scores of iguanas, and more panoramic city views. Opening hours vary depending on the season with entrance to the fort costing $3 per adult (for $5 you can purchase a ticket allowing entry into San Cristobal and del Morro).

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
