501 Calle Norzagaray, San Juan, Puerto Rico 00901| Map |
Finished in 1783, Castillo de San Cristobal is a Spanish fort built to protect against land-based attacks on San Juan. Visitors can see an extensive tunnel system connecting sections of the fort, troops' quarters, an artillery observation post, 200-pound mortar shells, military clothing, and the Caballero de San Miguel, the highest part of the port, which allows an unobstructed view of the city. There are also monthly visits by the volunteer reenactors of the 1797 Regimiento Fijo de Puerto Rico.
