Castillo San Felipe Del Morro - Review

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.

  • I had so much fun here! My friends and I visited with the intent to pay the entry fee for whatever was inside but found that we had a good enough experience just roaming around the outskirts! Tons to see, many great photo opportunities, plenty of signs explaining historical significance, AND if you go around the back to the ocean side, you'll be greeted by the HUNDREDS of cats that live on that side of the castle. So cute! Also saw a few iguanas too! Super cool landmark!

  • It is an extraordinary place full of lots of history. I visit the parks twice a month and every time I learn something new. You can close your eyes and actually she and feel what happened there. The staff is excellent and they are full of knowledge. Fantastic place to visit but the only problem is you won't want to leave and did I mention the view it's breathe taking. Puerto Rico is blessed to have a Natural Historic Park like this. I DEFINITELY FOUND MY PARK!

  • Fantastic fort. Very well kept and laid out. Lots of information provided as you walk freely around the grounds. I've been to many historic forts and castles and this is one of the best. It's a must if visiting San Juan!

  • Although it was raining on the day we visited this historical site, we still had an amazing experience. It was truly like walking 5 centuries into the past. The admission fee was only $7 and was good for a whole 24 hours, so we could have came back the following day if we wanted to. I highly recommend visiting Castillo San Felipe del Morro for anyone with plans to travel to Puerto Rico.

  • Beautiful history of how the island came to be. If you go on a holiday it's usually free. We went on Veterans Day. The views from the towers are beautiful and picturesque. Wear comfortable tennis shoes so some areas get wet from the rain (it is a tropical island) and the ground becomes slippery. There's tour guides that will take you to different sections and give you the history of the fort, battles, a day in the life of a soldier back then, etc. This was my second time going and I enjoyed it as much as the first time. I definitely recommend it to anyone who is visiting the island or locals.
