"ALCATRAZ" Alcatraz N.P. Tip by shivan

Alcatraz N.P., San Francisco: 21 reviews and 18 photos

by shivan

Favorite thing: New trip, new camera, new picture.
The quality of my zoom allowed to take this better picture.
Alcatraz, also called "The Rock", has been opened in 1933, and it's been operational until 1963.
It is also famous because its keepers were sure that no one could ever escape from it. Somebody tried, it is documented, but nobody ever reached the shore, because of currents, cold and possibly Sharks!
Now it is a museum

Address: In the middle of San Fracisco Bay
Directions: Alcatraz is reached by ferries of the Blue and Gold fleet from Pier 41
