Dedicated to King Philip II, the castle comes under one of the monuments of San Juan National Historical Site. Just as its counterpart on the north-eastern side del Morro too was a military fortress charged with protecting San Juan. With two fortresses on either side of the bay San Juan was powerfully protected however the del Morro was constructed a century before Cristobal. It’s also more scenic than any other fortresses. With its huge plain lawn at the entrance it offers a panoramic view of the entire place. Till about the end of 19th century del Morro succeeded in keeping the British and Dutch forces at bay.

This part of Old San Juan is a must see for anyone who hasn't been here. See the solid, well preserved centuries old fortress and the areas nearby. A word of advice though. There is always a traffic grid lock on this part of Old San Juan. Traffic here during work days and traffic here from tourists on weekends. When you arrived at the park area, you could be driving around for some time looking for a spot to park. Be early. The fortress closes at 6:00 PM. I suggest that you allocate an hour for inside. Have fun.
I was overwhelmed with the grandiose of it all. It's beautiful from anywhere in the fort. The sights from in there and out are beautiful!!! Tips, take a backpack with sunscreen, bottled water, snacks, charging pack, you'll take a ton of pictures. Most importantly wear some comfortable clothes and shoes. Do not wear flip-flop or sandals if you don't have to!!! Be ready to be TAKEN BACK INTO HISTORY!!! LOVED IT!! YOUR TICKET IS GOOD FOR THE FORT OF SAN CRISTOBAL ALSO, AND IT'S GOOD FOR UP TO 5 DAYS OF YOUR PURCHASE.
Beautiful piece of history on the tip of old San Juan. The massive structure is fun to explore and the vistas are magnificent. Going all the way from the oldest section at the bottom from the 1500s to the upper sections from the 17-1800s is great but it can be tiring because of all of the stairs, so just keep that in mind. Only $5 to get in and it gets into San Cristobal as well if you want.
The fort is incredibly beautiful. If you are in Puerto Rico, don't think, just go. The approach to the fort is beautiful in itself. Take your camera and walk around. It is amazing!
I really enjoyed the iguanas "manning" the fort - we saw three walking around like they owned the place! The details of this magnificent fortress, the beautiful views of the bay, and the feeling of being transported back to a different time in history, all make this a worthwhile stop.
