El Morro Or Morro Castle, Havana Reviews

  • Visited Cuba while on a Cruise for a total of 7 hours. Best to visit as an teen or older to appreciate the history. We walked around the tourist spots without any issues, people are very friendly. All the stories about the old American cars are true. Very odd to see a bottle of Havana Club rum cost less than a good cigar.

  • An interesting place to go. A great viewpoint. Most interesting for me was to see the old office of Che. And a few items belonging to him like his passport. And there were good Cuban music there.

  • Beautiful castle with great views and a solid exhibit detailing the castle's history. The views of the city if Havana and the ocean from the parapets is incredible, especially in the late afternoon. Unfortunately we showed up kind of late, being misinformed about the closing time, and discovered that they started closing the exhibit about 45 min before the actual closing, so get there early!

  • View of Havan is nice. There are shops here, but they close at 5pm. It is supposed to be a good place to watch the sunset.

  • Simple landmark with a nice light house looking towards the sea. Doesn't have much what it does offer are amazing views from sunrise to sunset.
