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.

Castillo San Felipe Del Morro, San Juan Reviews
Great historical area. Amazing views and plenty to see. Be prepared to walk around as there are several levels and plenty of stairs. Information is throughout to learn the rich history. At the time I went I could also use my ticket to go to the other castle - definitely a great value. Would do again.
Great place to visit! A lot of history here. You will get much more in touch with the history of Europe first discovering the Americas. Also, call me dense, but i didn’t realize this was a US national park until we entered. If you a park pass it works here. And everything you have come to respect about the national park system is in place. Well kept grounds, great historical information, clean facilities and helpful staff!
What an amazing place ! Very rich in history. Built in 1612 it feels like going back in time as soon as you step in. The structure stands strong throughout the ages, it seems that storms and hurricanes doesn't pose any threat to it, pretty much like incoming attacks back in the day. Every inch of this place is astonishing.
Fantastic Fort! Lots of cool views and the lighthouse is really neat. Admission is good for this fort and San Cristobal. Similar aspects between the two, but definitely a different experience. If you go on Sundays, buy a kite from the lady there and join everyone flying them on the huge grassy area out in front of the fort!
Visiting San Juan Puerto Rico and took in a visit to the old fort. It is a sight to see. It costs $7 to enter and walk around the fort to all levels. Some areas are steep and may be limited to those with health or disabilities. We parked in old San Juan and walked our way to the fort. It took us some time and we stopped and looked at the architecture of some of the buildings and as we made our way up to the fort and the cemetary it was a good 30 minutes. The views are amazing and breathtaking. We even came across some iguanas. Very historical site and the money paid goes to maintaining it. Well worth the money.
