The Castillo el Morro is a wonderful place to visit in the city of Havana. Usually just referred to as El Morro, this tall lighthouse standing tall on the coast is a definite must visit in the city. The old and lovely building will certainly take you back in time.

The building itself is stunning but the views of the harbor from this place are even better. Don’t forget to check out the sprawling city that stands in the background either. The lovely sea-breeze makes a visit a memorable experience.

This place is definitely a must visit whether you like photography, want to kill some time in the city or just want to experience amazing beauty.

El Morro Or Morro Castle, Havana Reviews - Write a Review

  • The building had no power when we visited and the locals will take advantage of any opportunity to close or keep tourists out. If you know Spanish like me you will catch on to their strategies quite quickly. Pretty much all the locals behave the same way. Despite this, the old fortresses are a sight to behold. The walled city had many different points such as this one to keep it's inhabitants safe. They still have the tradition of "El cañonazo" where they fire their canons at 9pm to signal the city was closing its doors. You wouldn't be let in until the doors opened again the next day.

  • Went here on a 2 hour Vintage/Classic Car tour. It was a nice historical area.

  • Really awesome historical site. As an American visiting for the first time, obviously wish we had more time, but hope to go back again. FYI to fellow Americans, no real safety standards like here, so watch your step.

  • This is a nice historical site, you get to see the colonial fort and even the canons. Be careful when you're on the ledge, there is no safety barrier setup, so you need to watch where you are going. The bus tours to Havana usually stop here on the way back to Varadero.
