Castillo De La Real Fuerza - Review

The Castle of the Royal Force is one of the many historic buildings of Cuba that are worth a see. This place set on the shore and looks like an ancient fortress that would must have seemed quite formidable to any enemy.

The square castle is a lovely sight. It is possible that it is the oldest castle in the continent. It stands tall on the harbor and is home to several artefacts from sea voyages including a bit of treasure retrieved by divers from shipwrecks. The maritime museum has so many interesting things to see, be sure to have enough time to see it all.

The only catch is that none of the plaques are in English so you will have to ask a local or guide to help you understand the glorious marine history of the area.

Castillo De La Real Fuerza, Havana Reviews

  • ..old fort in Cuba, very interesting n surreal, walking amongst the remains of the walls n buildings. Cannons, old planes..a great piece of history..

  • Interresting old fortress with a lot of history. It is smart to read a little about its history before you go there.

  • Great place and history. Have to pay (2-3 CUC) to visit inside the castle but the grounds are free entrance.

  • Very disappointing. We were charged for admissions and five minutes later we are being told the place is closing in five minutes. A lady approached us and told us that since we seemed like nice people she would get us into an area of the museum that was off limits. She walked us into a room that had a cord. She removed the cord and asked us to hurry in as if she was doing something wrong. It was all staged. The area is not off limits but they convince you it is. This was in 2012.

  • Interesting visit and convenient for those already visiting old Havana. Enjoyed the many exhibits on 18th century naval technology and marine archeology.
