El Morro, Havana

(4.2/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
Explore the 16th-century fortified castle at El Morro. Built to protect Havana's harbor from ongoing raids, the site now affords visitors wonderful views of the city, especially at sundown. If you’re interested in history, you'll enjoy your walk around the fortress. However, you'll be exposed to the elements during much of your stroll, so check the weather before you visit. Pop into the onsite maritime museum for accounts of epic sieges, then consider climbing up the lighthouse for a small extra charge. For El Morro and beyond, use our Havana holiday planner to get the most from your Havana vacation.

  • I went with my friends to the cannon shot that takes place every day at 9 pm. It was a good experience, they also have several crafts around the Central magnificent if you want to buy and wear. It is not expensive.

  • The strong El Morro is a place from which you can enjoy the view of the city of Havana. At night the cannon shot ceremony is very nice, in addition you can buy crafts and stroll through El Fuerte.
