Built in 1609 the Jeronimo fort served as a great fortification on the eastern side of the city. In 1797 the English forces attacked the fort with about 60 ship. Under the leadership of the then Lt. Col. Don Teodmiro del Torro the Spanish troops resisted and fought for two full weeks. They were successful in defeating the brits but lost the fort due to constant bombardment. It was later rebuilt in 1799 and continued to serve as military bastion till early 20th century. In 1983 it was declared a site of Historic Significance and was open to the public. It did undergo renovations continuously as it was deteriorating throughout the years due to lack of attention. However now the fort is restored and is open to public. It offers a superb view of the San Juan bay. There are also plans to include it in as part of San Juan National Historic Site.
