  • It is a small fortress steeped in history, it served to defend the city against invaders even against the American invasion, here they fought great battles, now only stay as a reminder of its days of glory, the entrance to the bulwark is free but if you want to enter the small museum inside the fee is 55 pesos ($3) is in the center of the city very close to the malecon and the plaza de armas, is worth visiting it.

  • Vestige of Fort very near the Centre and the attractions such as the coffee of the parish, museums culture and more. In the upper part there is a small museum exhibiting pieces from the period.

  • Poor sounds strictly. The title makes it better. The remaining buildings of the old fortification are really not worth mentioning. A view from the Turibis tour are absolutely sufficient.
