The fort guards the entrance to the harbor and played an important role in the history of Cuba. You will enjoy seeing it and taking pictures. It is in great shape and you are allowed to visit and climb all over it.
Great looking fort on the harbour which help protect the riches of Havana from various nations for a couple of centuries. The canons are in pristine condition and is lovely and cool to walk around with a breeze from El Malecon.
Definitely worth a visit..
Being in Havana this Fortress is the must place to visit. Its really very interesting archeological complex with authentic spirit there. You will find a very beautiful view from there on the city. Secondly every evening at 20-50 or 21-00 i am not sure fireworks from canons start with historical procedure of changing of the guard. There are few museums...
This fort is right on the Malecon so it's easy to visit. It's in good shape and offers great views across the harbor towards El Morro, the larger fort on the other side. Make sure you have a guide or read up on the history so you can appreciate the significance.
